TO me it's very dated, but I couldn't care less. I want the basic controls within reach. Other than the driving controls, I want volume and track seek and that's about it.

I just did a 12 hour round trip from Montreal to Toronto in my new GX. It was so smooth and comfortable I thought I was in a limousine. Crazy quiet, nearly silent. Fuel economy was pretty good too....
