Stereo controls on the steering wheel is nice. The two cars I've had with them are simple enough--volume, cycle presets up/down, change input, and one has a mute button. The volume gets used a lot, the presets get used when I'm listening to the radio, and I can do it all with my left thumb without having to look away from the road. I've actually turned down cars (and other features I'd like) because of the touch screen controls. I like physical buttons and dials for things so that I don't have to look.
