    Since owning the car exactly a month, I never notice until this morning waiting at a red light with the right sun reflection. I notice some ridge lines on the steering wheel. I know it serves a purpose for airbag deployment, but I have owned 8 cars since 2003 and none were this noticeable. You can actually feel the lumps, etc :) Btw, its a 2012.

    Part of the design, OP.

    And, yep, too much free time. Eight cars since 2003? Wow. Did these sort of "distractions" or "flaws" cause you to turn in these other cars?

    Just curious.

    No distractions. Just bored with them I guess. The tacoma will be a keeper since I will use it to haul a couple of jet skis and looking to get a travel trailer in the future :D.
