First, let me start off by saying that GM got this truck 95% right. There's so much to like about it from the size, the looks, the performance, the economy, and fun driving aspect......but there are a few things driving me nuts!
1. Seat adjustment. I'm tall and need the seat as low as possible, but when I lower the seat to get my head out of the roof the front of the bottom seat cushion raises thus making it uncomfortable to the point of cutting off the circulation in my legs. This truck needs at least a 6-way seat adjustment....I don't even care if its manual....I need the ability to get the seat in a position where I'm comfortable.
2. I have four vehicles......the other three have the following features that I want on my truck.....even if they are an option I would like the ability to spec my truck the way I want it....
-Keyless entry.....I hate fishing for my keys when I get to the door. Why So someone can easily access your vehicle with a simple range extender?
-Push button start.....again its a key thing Why So someone can easily access your vehicle with a simple range extender and start you truck and steal it?
-Homelink.....I don't like the stupid door opener hanging on the visor and I don't like the idea of modifying a $40K truck to install it. Homelink is about as new technology as a CD player in your truck. So many better options. Bluetooth, Wifi enabled, proximity detection with headlight flash garage door openers,
-Real Daylight LED running lights....why on earth they turn on the headlights with the LED's in there blows my mind. Be
-I would like to have the option to delete the Sliding Rear Window (I have an SLT)...I don't use it....I don't like the way it looks, and its easy for a thief to pop it open.
Since I'm 70 years old I'm very safety conscience.....would like to have these features...
-All LED lights period!
-Turn signal lights in the mirrors.
-Blind Side Warning
-Front and Rear Bumper proximity sensors
There's nothing else in the market that I would replace my Canyon with at this time....while the Ridgeline has all the features I want....its really not a truck and its downright ugly. I did look seriously for a few weeks, but I decided NO!
I'm just hoping that GM reads these forums and understands what people really want and will pay for as opposed to putting it out there with a take it or leave it. A truck costing $40K should have this stuff at least as an option. I really had high hopes for the Danali......but 20" wheels, steps, coated bed and a little bit better leather while still not having the options noted above doesn't justify the $4K cost difference for me.....I really want what I want!
Please don't flame me too bad!!!!
