Anyone else bothered by the way the center console on the 2nd gens opens (ie, with the opening hinge on the passenger side instead of the rear)?
I mean, it's great for the driver, but my wife/co-pilot finds it annoying that she has to reach over the top when it's opened to get to anything.
We just looked at the 2010 Highlander today and that console hinges along the back edge. My wife says the Tundra also opens along the rear edge...WTF?
Why does it make sense to open one way on the $40,000 Highlander and another on our $23,000 Tacoma? Do we have to spend the extra $17,000 to get some well thought out amenities?
Can you replace the center console with a rear hinged console?
