Who really cares, When you have cruise turned you know you have cruise turned on. Besides who is looking at RPMS when cruising. Plus at other speeds the needle is elsewhere. The fact that cruising at 75 is not legal in most states is also applicable.

Most annoying thing about my truck is the steering wheel rattle!

Sirius satellite radio reception. This vehicle is by far, the worse I have had for driving down the road. I do live in Western Washington, where there are lots of evergreen trees along the highways, but other vehicles were not impacted.

It is better than previous vehicles in one regard, it works in my garage, which is great! It is nice to have it cranked while keeping that black paint clean of which is a frequent occurrence :)

When you have the Trifecta tune it's good to see if you're in Eco mode, so yes the placement is annoying. SoCal freeways I set my cruise at 80 and I still get passed. I hope you aren't one of those people that go 65 in the fast lane and get pissed when people are riding you! Usually they are self righteous Prius's however. Haha

Annoying: Steering wheel rattle, transmission shifting, cheap dash material, keys banging around when going over bumps/turns.

Wish list: Leather option on Z71, V8 option(I know will never happen), some kind of cool LED driving lights like the Canyon, less obtrusive shift lever, keyless start.

It was not designed for the trifecta tune, so your point is null. Second I live a country who uses the logic based metric system, so its km/h here and anything over 110 is over the speed limit. You are probably one of those people who think you are allowed to drive in the left lane (Not the fast lane: its the PASSING LANE)

The satellite radio reception SUCKS! The shifting can be annoying at times as well, it gets a brain fart every now and then on how it wants or not want to shift. With all that I wouldn't trade my truck for nothing!

True but regardless even if I didn't have the tune it would still be in the way. They could have put in a million other spots for something that is used so often.

Nope, I get over when someone faster is coming up. I don't hate on them for speeding.

Would you prefer the blinker there? That complaint has come up already.

most annoying thing in my eyes is how when scrolling through the presets via the steering wheel it doesn't change the page of the presets. It only shows what station you're on the "main screen."
