    This is like the same post Ed Hellwig did last week. It even uses the same photo.

    You may consider it simple, but I see many issues with it. The buttons are quite small and sit low on the center stack, making them difficult to see when your eyes should be focused on the road and difficult to operate with gloves on. Plus, using a button for mode forces one to toggle through other modes to get to the one you want; a mode knob is much better because you can turn directly to the mode you want. And with that tiny screen can one actually see the mode icons, especially in direct sunlight?

    fordson1, I don't think it uses the same photo. I remember the earlier photo had the temp set at 70; this one's at 72.

    That climate control LCD screen under the radio looks like it came right off a 1980's era calculator. Toyota deserves to get dinged on the cheapness of this display. In the era where Edmunds can (and will) ding other manufacturers for the the hardness/softness of dash materials, how does this thing get a pass? Seriously? $23k for a vehicle and it's got a display ripped from dollar-store calculator. Inexcusable!
