New car features that will drive you crazy
New cars are supposed to make life more enjoyable, not more frustrating. We all love the way some cars do cool things we like. For example, many cars will open all the windows if you press the key fob a certain way. What a great feature as you walk towards a hot car on a summer’s day. Why don’t all cars do that? We here at TN recently wrote a few articles highlighting the best new car features, but now it’s time to let loose!

See you at city hall.
