This is steering wheel is admittedly on the busy side, but I like the setup of the main buttons. The rocker switch for the volume is easy to find without looking while the seek and "mode" buttons all fall under your thumb when driving with your hands in the proper position.

Not much to complain about with the cruise control setup either. Push up to go faster, down for slower and the big cancel button to get rid of it. Probably could have just made one big on/off button, but no reason to complain.

The other buttons are usable enough. Not sure why other cars don't color the answer and hang up buttons green and red. Probably just an aesthetic thing.
