    Hopefully they don't use that god awful cue system, I want knobs on my radio. Had the opportunity to mess with one in an XTS and it was a nightmare, overcomplicating something doesn't mean its better.

    To paraphrase Allen Iverson " You talkin' about dealers ". When it comes to anything except trying to sell you a vehicle, most don't know up from down. We as enthusiasts know more about performance cars in our little finger than many of these clowns know in their whole body.

    You're not the only one! Ford now has redundant radio/tuning/volume knobs added to their MyFord Touch & Synch infotainment systems as a result of customer complaints that "the system is bulky, distracting and overly complicated to use."

    ...another vote for the KISS approach to technology!

    I agree about the cue capacitive touch sensors, they're kind of hit and miss, but I found that the steering wheel buttons work fine for volume and changing radio stations or tracks. And they're not capacitive, they're actual buttons. I still agree that certain controls need physical controls like knobs and buttons. That really is a basic human interface rule they should not be breaking, especially in a car where you have to take your eyes off the road to see where you're putting your finger.

    That said, I did find the steering wheel buttons to be acceptable in the XTS and ATS loaners I've had.

    For selecting content and controlling volume, buttons are not enough. The best control for these functions is a knob. Both small and large adjustments can be made quickly. There is no acceptable substitute, period.

    Knobs or GTFO.

    Kinda funny.....my 2010 CTSV has big round knobs (1-1/4 inch diameter? more?) and nice, easy to hit buttons. My 2009 Suburban Z71, with it's cavernous interior and manly truck-ness, has teeny tiny radio knobs (1/2 inch?) and teeny tiny buttons that are hard to use with bare hands when parked, let alone when driving or when wearing gloves. the buttons on the touch screen are even harder to hit. Even my kids commented on how silly the relative knob/button sizes are between the two vehicles.....
