The Top New Car Features We Struggle With

Cars used to be simple, just put it in gear and go.  But someone polled 500 people who’ve bought NEW cars in the past two years.  And two-thirds said at least one tech feature gave them trouble.  The top vote-getter isn’t actually that new of a feature though.  Here are the ones we struggle with most.

1.  How to use the cruise control.  It’s been common in cars since the 1960s.

2.  Park assist, where it helps you get into parking spots.

3.  Bluetooth.  So, getting your phone or other gadgets to connect.

4.  Sports mode.  Some cars have it.  You can accelerate faster when it’s on.

5.  Lane assist, where it centers you in your lane.

6.  Brake assist, where it helps you stop faster when needed.

7.  Fog lights.  No one knows where the switch is.

8.  Wireless chargers, where you can just set your phone down and it charges.

9.  Electronic parking brakes.  A lot of new cars have a button instead of a lever.

10.  GPS, because it’s different than the app you’re used to.
