    Agree - it's treated like a secondary control, which it's not.

    definitely not good placement.

    On a side note, and I'm probably the only one that thinks this, can we retire the word "Fail"? At least from 'professional' writing. Keep it on video posts of people hurting themselves but it is so overused everywhere else.

    I've seen this in a bunch of Nissans. Kind of unbelievable, really. I drove a Maxima and went to turn up the volume and ended up changing the channel. It seemed like the logical location for the volume control, but it wasn't. Thing is, now they've been doing it one way for so long, it would be difficult to change.

    Looking at the picture I thought the volume was the rocker switch on the 9:00 spoke.

    Interesting - I use audio controls the exact opposite way from Erin. I hardly ever use the volume controls on the steering wheel. It's much simpler / easier to grab the volume knob and turn. The control I use the most is track up / down to skip through my songs on shuffle. The rocker switch is perfect for that -- much easier than using the touchscreen.
