Question: What Automotive Features Lend Themselves to Mischief?
Some questionable features are just ripe for abuse
I have spend countless hours in the back seat of my dad's 2002 Toyota Tundra. I've had to occasion to post a review here before. It's already not a super large space, but if the seat in front of you is unfavorably positioned, it can get much worse.
This 300k mile 4x4 beast is a comfortable way to wait out the apocalypse
Given my older brother sat in front of me in the passenger seat more often than not, I of course got knocked in the noggin by a suddenly reclining or sliding seat plenty of times. But there was a secret counter to this that could quickly escalate the situation: In the first gen Tundra, a foot pedal that violently sends the seat back of the passenger seat flying forward.
Presumably, it was put there for ease of moving the passenger seat for loading the rear, but in practice it serves as a way for kids to mess with each other to the chagrin of tired parents. It did balance things out a little as if suddenly I found the seat back bumping my forehead, I could just push that lever with my foot and the tides would turn.
So, what features in your cars seemed like a good idea on paper only to foster mischief in practice?
