2009 Audi A4 Avant: Don't Take Over For Pontiac, Please

July 29, 2009

I really do like our A4 wagon, I swear, so allow me to get picky for a moment. See all those various buttons and switches clustered around the door handle? There's quite a few of them. A few too many in my estimation, like a Pontiac Grand Am or something.

Obviously you can't do much about the window switches, but those memory buttons for the seat could be hidden away a little better. Easy for me to say though, I never use them.

And whatever happened to a simple rotary knob for the lights? I mean, I stick the thing on auto and never touch it again 99% of the time, does it really need all the extra stuff around it?

Could probably get rid of that door lock rocker switch too. Just make the doors unlock when you pull the lever no?
