    Re: What is the ELR missing that other Cadillacs have?

    Thanks for reminding me about that. I dragged the 'microphone' phone icon from the home screen to the app tray, and now there's one less step to Siri.

    Unfortunately, there's no way to add 'Destination' to either the app tray or home screen, nor can I add individual settings to toggle them (like 'Turn Off Display'). Of course, I don't have any room on the app tray since it's limited to 5, and I want audio, phone, nav, climate, and leaf always available. But I also want 'settings', so bummer about not having room for that.

    And while I'm thrilled that the ELR added "A/C Off" and "A/C Recirculate" hard buttons to the center console, it's a real shame that it's missing ones for the 'Leaf' screen (which you'd think would be fundamental to the car, like in the Volt!), 'Destination,' and 'Map.'

    Guess I'll have to get used to some voice commands so I'm not constantly looking at the center screen for the settings I want!

    It's also a shame there's no mute button on the steering wheel like the Volt, and that the "power" button for the stereo is really just that missing mute button (meaning it doesn't stop your iPod from playing when it's pressed, so it has the same infuriating problem as the Volt which I had hoped would be fixed in the ELR).

    Oh, well...90% awesome, 10% stupid. Not a bad ratio for a new car! There's definitely room for improvement in the ELR's C.U.E. system, but it's a heck of a lot better than my wife's Rav4 EV, the Fisker Karma's interface, and the Volt.

    When will these damned car manufacturers start calling me during the focus group stage so I can set them straight before the car is finished flawed? lol.

    Of course, there's the obvious thing the ELR is missing that other Cadillacs have at local dealerships: Buyers!

    One of my favorite features with leather seating and Premium models of other Cadillacs is a ventilated/cooled seat, had in XLR and CTS, not in the ELR.

    OK, CUE Collections is NOT on the ELR I just took delivery on a week ago. Is it still coming? Do I just need to have my dealer perform upgrades? Or is it vaporware?
