-The cruise control sucks. What's so hard about designing a system that adjusts your speed +/- 1 mph based on if you push the stalk up or down once? I have to push the damn thing up 3 times to get it to increase 1 mph.

-the ambient temperature gauge is just off the charts inaccurate. Just yesterday I took a 3 hour drive (charlotte to Raleigh) and the closest the gauge ever got to being correct was 5-6 degrees. For the majority of the trip it was 9-10 degrees off.

Minor details like this make me wonder about the quality of engineering that goes into more important items.

Well, BushMan, if your arm gets tired, we've found this works good for both the pilot and co-pilot ....

I don't have either of these problems.

The cruise control works fine for me.. Accurate increments .. Just takes a second or two to notice..
The outside temp can be adjusted via techstream.. There is a setting for it.

Man, your life is good if these are your only problems. I'm with you, though. I've stopped driving my car because of these issues. I can't stand not knowing to a degree what the temp is. As far as the armrest complaints, why is getting a small pillow so hard?

I don't have either of these problems either. and cruise works exactly the same as all of the other toyota/lexus/scions I've owned.

Before I placed knee pads, I used to hate resting my legs on the side walls of the driver seat. I was getting joint pains on long 3-4 hour drives.

For a moment I thought I was getting osteoarthritis from driving the car..

Bluetooth symbol popped up and everything it just wouldn't allow me to use the phone, I tried turning bluetooth on the phone off and on multiple times to no avail. I figure it was just a quirk, but I guess I'll find out as I go.
Just to update. I don't think the bluetooth links up properly with my phone except when I do the full syncing process (car in find mode, search for link in the phone, and connect through there). It is only when I do this that I notice that my phone has connected. As far as I can tell I cannot have bluetooth turned on on my phone and just hop in the car and it automatically connects. I might have to bring this up to the dealer (they did tell me the Bespoke was a simple and free firmware update to my HU, which it isn't).

1. voice command: Doesn't work 99% of the time I try it. I've pretty much given up ever using it.

2. jack points: I guess I shouldn't ever jack my car up...

those aren't the jack points. There's a spot at the front of the car and the rear diff. those are for the emergency jack only...

So where are you supposed to put the jack stands after you use the floor jack?
