I had a Merc hire car with the doodah Scud describes... and it was definitely a ball-ache. Even after two weeks it was clumsy to drive.
I would avoid buying anything with such crappiness in it. I appreciate "technology" changes over time and it's important not to become an accidental Luddite.. but in the old days technology evolved when something better (or hopefully better) came along. These days "technology" is a Trojan Horse for some new gizmo that might be absolute ****e, but it just happens to be cheaper to manufacture.
