2011 Chevrolet Cruze LTZ: Thinker's Bump

See that little bump atop the door panel that encases the lock pin? Drives me bananas.

You finally get a little break in traffic and just want to ease back, rest your arm up there and reflect on the day's toil when - poke - you got this little lump of hard plastic and metal (the pin does not retract fully flush) jabbin' ya. So you redistribute and lean on the dinky armrest, which tends to slide back to its default position anytime you shift a little weight on it.

Still like the Cruze. But the little things add up.
