You’d be surprised at the age of certain automotive convenience features. Auto tune radios, cruise control, running board-mounted dwarf valet, they all go way back. Modern technology – notably the electronic revolution – has accelerated many convenience and safety feature adoptions, but there’s still an empty place that many drivers feel inside, every time they get behind their feature-laden wheels.
Your seat may be powered. It may – depending on the season – either heat or cool your crack. It could even massage your tired back while your in-dash communication system tweets the fact.Yeah, cars and trucks today are almost overburdened with features, so much so that their owners manuals have ballooned to hundreds of pages just in the description of their individual use.
But what, in your mind, is missing? What feature – either convenience, safety, or performance – is going unfulfilled by today’s selection of automobilia? Are you desperate for an in-car bidet – which I just embarrassingly learned is only for after the fact? What missing feature do you think cars today should possess?
