It's not the position of the control so much as the need to do two separate functions to set the intermittent speed and to turn on the wiper. A simple twist through the intermittent speeds and on to slow continuous and fast continuous is more ergonomically simple to me than having to twist a separate ring on the stalk to set intermittent speed and turn it on with a down motion.
I really will miss the dual sun visor system on my Taurus when I change vehicles next, which I believe no one offers any more on any vehicle.

In most cases, it's a single action to turn on the intermittent wipers: flick the stalk down one notch. You only need to touch the dial if the speed needs adjusting. I leave my intermittent setting on low, and rarely have to adjust it. It's all what you're used to. I'm used to the way the Elantra et. al. do it; you're used to the way Ford does it.
#91 of 93 2010 Elantra Problems
Mar 29, 2011 (6:05 am)
I bought two new Elantra's in 2010 - a Blue manual trans model and a GLS auto.
The GLS has 11k miles and just stalled on the road a month ago. After 3 weeks in the shop, Hyundai replaced the engine. The dealer's shop said it spun a main bearing - and said he had never seen that before. Running good now.
The Blue has a vibration in the steering wheel at cruising speed. It's bad enough to make my hands go to sleep after an hour. The dealer road force balanced all the tires/wheels and found one way out of spec and corrected it. But the vibration is still there - as bad as before. Interesting that if I push in the clutch at speed, the vibration goes away - so I'm thinking the vibration is associated with some part of the power delivery system, e.g. engine, clutch, trans, half-shafts or? Anybody got ideas of how I can explain the problem to the dealer - and how he should troubleshoot it?
#92 of 93 Quality of ride problems?

I bought a new 2010 Elantra GLS in Jan. of 2011. Also had a 2003 Elantra GLS that had a great ride - very smooth. I took the 2010 back to dealer complaining of the ride being excessively bouncy day after I received it. They said the shocks needed time to loosen up. Went back today - have sold the 2003 and now only driving the 2010 complaining of the same problem - especially if you are riding in the passanger seat. After waiting over 2 hours they say they don't notice any problems when they drive it. Has anyone else had this problem? Everyone that rides in my car complains. Feels like you are in a bouncy house!

So, a year and a half later...wondering if you ever found the source of the suspected drivetrain vibration?
