We've heard about the feature that gets you all excited; now let's hear about the one that, in your opinion, is completely useless.

~MR 😊
I agree with rear mirror to see in the back seats. Should be a sunglasses holder - or at least make a sunglasses holder an optional insert to the mirror.
Can't put the vehicle in gear if the auto parking brake is on unless the seat belt is fastened. It's a pain when detailing the car. My driveway has a very slight slope, enough for the parking brake to auto-engage. If I want to move the car enough for 1/2 revolution of the tires when cleaning/detailing them I gotta fasten the seat belt! And I agree with most of the other useless items!
Oh, on the plus side, on my 2013 Nissan Pathfinder when auto-opening the tailgate, the car would beep and flash the emergency flashers for the entire time it took for the tailgate to open. Thankfully on the Palisade it only beeps and flashes twice!

Lots do.. claustrophobia prevents many from travelling. Personally I don’t. My “beef” with the door locks is that I find a door or the hatch locked.. when I need to open it. And, yes I have my setting to unlock all doors when key out.. but it don’t always work.
EDIT: Just yesterday took key out, all doors should unlock. Open rear hatch, remove walker.. walk around to assist with front seat passenger, door is unlocked as it should be. Went to let rear passenger out.... door is locked. WTF
That is so true. I can't stand this feature because so many times when I stop put my car in park all doors are supposed to unlock but the rear doors never do. I would say they stayed lock three out of five times

The remote park assist on 2023’s help with this a lot. I do the tire dressing, hit the button and move it a few feet, then finish the bottom of the tire

The rear occupant alert system is useless to me since I don't have little kids (and would likely disable it anyway if I had them). We've also never used the intercom feature even though it's highly touted by the commercials. The vehicle is quiet enough you don't need to shout to hear the back passengers.
You can turn off the rear occupant alert system (as I have). It was deployed and likely will be standard equipment on all cars in the future due to people accidently leaving their infants in the car when leaving the car--many kids have died during hot weather.

Obstuction alert in the front when in reverse. Can anyone explain this one to me? When I park front in, I correctly get the alert, but everytime I back out, it alerts the front. It's like cry wolf--will not pay attention when there is actually a rear obstruction.

We've had the same issue. Took it to the dealership and couldn't replicate it. I kept an eye on it and now I believe it's happening when the engine automatically shuts off when I'm stopped - like when I pull into the garage.

I think Hyundai’s Can-bus system has some gremlins in it. When I use the remote to drop the windows I sometimes get just one random window that doesn’t go down.

Reminding you about battery rundown when in the ACC mode and listening to your music. Wasted space under the centre consul, a couple of inches deeper and you “might” be able to use the cup holders AND the cover at the same time. AND door locks.. let me decide when I want to lock the doors, or keep them unlocked all the time.
I use the space under the Consul to sort of hide my pocketbook if I leave it in the car to run in somewhere.

Hyundai's adaptive cruise control is one of the best and i use it every time i am on the freeway or in bumper to bumper traffic
The hands free bit is scary though. I can see where “some” are going to read a book or play a game on their phone instead of watching the road. The “keep your hand on the wheel” sensors are hit and miss.. and on mine don’t work at all. I can probably drive for hours without touching the wheel.

I find it’s a really great hands free system but not good enough to read a book. Sometimes it can go for 20 minutes, other times it’s like 30 seconds with no warning: It’s just unreliable enough to prevent a false sense of security which makes it an incredibly safe system.
