Car builders completely ignore two legged people. Only the right leg is given a job or even a thought. It used to be both legs were treated evenly but now with no clutch, no dimmer switch, no windshield washer pump, and in some cases no radio station selection switch thought and use are for the right leg only. Surely some sharp ambulance chaser can conger up a class action suit against such injustice.

I''ll join in. The reason I have a 21 year old truck is that Ford doesn't put manual transmissions in trucks anymore. frown
Real trucks have manual trannies and clutch pedals. cool

I much prefer the dimmer switch on the floor. I drive sometimes at night on a curved two lane mountain road and as you come suddenly onto oncoming traffic it can be hard to find the dimmer switch while turning. With my modern Silverado, my left foot doesn't have anything to do anyway and it would be better designed to have the switch on the floor.

Did you hear back in the Eighties there was a safety movement to have the dimmer switch put back on the floor?

Don -- As a natural blonde (I'll show you some pictures of me as a younger man sometime), I am deeply offended by your comments and demand reparations and justice!
