Which A/C setup do you prefer?
 
I was a little surprised how many people didn't care about their steering wheels, so I figured while I was on a role, I'd post one more poll...

Do you prefer knob A/C units or button A/C units? The advantage to knobs is that you can adjust the A/C quicker. The advantage to buttons is that it looks nicer?

I had to get it out of the way now though... while the other post was still current. If I posted this in 6 months, it'd be deja vu galore. Also, I was going to add the slider, but those didn't have dual climate control, so I figured I'd just leave "other" as the option for that :\

i voted 'i dont care'.

As far as I am concerned i am not making buying decisions on how many spokes a steering wheel has. It doesnt matter to me how the HVAC works so long as it does. THese are NOT buying criteria ME or for the majority of the general public. you are getting back to your 99th percentile stuff IMO. What levbel has your OCD been classified as??


now a question like 'do I prefer seats in my Jeep' or 'would you like a motor with that Jeep' or 'do you prefer to have glass in the holes in the door' now i might care.




GL with your polls.

every page costs members some of their donated support money so the next poll might be whether to restrict your priveleges here at the garage.....

Then why bother buying a jeep if that's all you care about?

I'm asking a simple question and I clearly stated this was my last poll. You're the one wasting bw on your useless responses to my threads... while at the same time, bumping them back to the top.

Simple as this man, if you feel that you need to make these polls, which in a sense, are worthless....

If you feel like you need to keep doing this, donate to the site. Rob is right, if you are going to continue with this, you may lose privledges, so I would insist on donating the initial fee. Then you can do whatever you would like.

Like previous members have said, your polls are getting a little to far out there.

look the first part of my post was the honest truth. how many spokes a steering wheel has or the HVAC or other IMO minute details dont really affect my buying decisions. after the other poll I was convinced that my daily driver, my 98 XJ that I bought new had a 3 spke wheel. itoday it has 133K miles and I do drive it every day. anyway, i THOUGHT my wk had the 4 spoke and my XJ had a 3 spoke.............neither :eek: and you can see i pretty much drive one handed at about 10-11 oclock. i need one of them wheelskins

now the last part of that post: I want to apologize for that; I didn't mean to make a threat or anything like that So I retract that part about any of your priveleges. yours are the same as everyone else. this is a public forum so have at it. if you really feel these polls and the details are important than go for it bro.





last about it from me: 'why bother to buy a jeep if I dont care about how many spokes the wheel has or other small details? again those small details really dont matter. here's what does:

I luv my XJ. It has been a great vehicle, not a lot of stuff ever gone wrong. so i had a bit of brand loyalty. i wanted an suv with a v8. I think the wk is a good looking Jeep. they had a lifetime powertrain warranty. zero %. at the time i got employee pricing and we negotiated from there. my criteria are much broader. oh yeah im also 6'2" with a long torso so if it fits I usually buy it.

Knobs... Much easier and quicker.

In my dads cadillac, it'll take you 20 seconds to move it from 65 to 90 degrees. Annoying!!

There sure is some anger on these forums about the cost of running a website and what specific part you can talk about on the WK. I would vote for I like both but maybe a little more towards button. Back to the shadows...

To be frank I find my WK climate control so efficient and discreet I never move any settings.
I found the temp I like, have it on auto low, and have never moved it since.
Superb!

Normal aircon however, I'd choose a slide or rotary dial. But the images shown are full climate, so it's a mute point for me :)

That's my feeling on the matter. I live in Florida and our winter seasons have nights in the 40's and day's in the 90's. So during the winter, you constantly have to adjust it back and forth. I had an 03 330Ci that moved 1 degree per second and it sounds like what your dad's dealing with. I'm curious if the technology has improved on the newer vehicles to where if you hold the button down, it'll go faster.

I fully understand why you don't care. I drive with my hand in the 6 oclock position, so imagine a spoke at the 10-11 position... sticking out of the top! (because your hand sits on the outside of the wheel, where my hand sits on the inside).

No worries.
