OK, this is not a thread that makes light of any valid complaints that folks have had here about any nagging things that new car owners should not have to live with. To the contrary, now that Pandora has graced my screen with her presence and my Overland works pretty much as it was designed and continues to be a great vehicle for our needs, my attention has shifted to little things that are probably not worth a whole lot of attention, but that seem to have gotten no more than that in design.
Here's one from me:
If you look to the right of the "D" for Drive, you will see a number 1 that designates first gear. That's how it looks with a flash on my camera. Here is what I see normally:
It took me over 5,000 miles to realize that my complaint about not being able to detect what gear the transmission was in had less to do with the feature not being offered and everything to do with it not being perceivable.
If I really work at it, I can see the gear indicator if there is absolutely no ambient light on the display. I have played with the display light switch, but it only goes from bad to worse. Maybe it's my eyes. Anybody else bugged by the hidden gear indicator?
