Are you a current or recent car shopper who bought an EV and then installed solar – or who had solar already, making the decision to go electric easier?
OR
Are you a recent EV buyer (past 3 months) as a result of manufacturer incentives and dealer discounts on these vehicles, including year-end deals? Were you convinced to buy an EV after finding a good end-of-year deal, or due to uncertainty around which EVs will no longer qualify for full/partial EV tax credits in 2024?

If there's one thing I would change about the interior of our long-term 2015 Chevrolet Colorado, it would be the auxiliary buttons on the steering wheel.

    They do have a weird feel about them. If they are durable, I'll roll with it.

    Trucks, when designed and built correctly, are made to be work horses. Although Edmunds and most of the public use them for runs to home depot and moving they also have to be for guys and gals who need them for hard work. Those rubber covered buttons will keep the dirt, sweat and grime on the hands of a landscaper (for example) from fouling them up. It also makes them much easier to clean.

    Not to mention the potential of melting snow for folks in the north. I see no issue with these buttons.

    It's not just water, it's dirt and grease. It is a truck after all. One piece rubber button helps keep grime out of them.

    The same rubbery buttons are used in the Impala, which is hardly a work vehicle. So it's hard to justify them for their ruggedness alone.
