: Shifter back-lighting

Should the gear indicators on the center console be back-lit? 2005 SRX AWD V6.

On our '04, the selected gear is illuminated on the console, but you will only see it at night. The back-light is only on the selected position (P, R, N, etc.).

Yes, when we took delivery of ours the lights on the shift indicator were out. We returned it to the dealer a few days later to find another one in the shop for the exact same thing.

Thanks for the replies.

My 05 V8 AWD is also backlight -- but you really can't tell unless you're driving at night, without any street lights glaring into the car. Very subtle.
