So yesterday I took a 10th EX out on a test drive while the dealership appraised my potential trade, a 2015 EX. While driving it I have to say, i liked the car, the seats were great and all that. The one thing that bothered me was the angle of the infotainment system. I wish they would have tilted it a bit towards the driver, the straight back or as it seemed to me a bit towards the passenger was troublesome. Anyone else think that or is it just me?

I did not do the trade, although I liked the car, I just was not ready to roll that much negative equity over, I thought I would bit a bit more out of my trade.

I bought a 2016 Touring and don't find it to be an issue. Not sure what it looks like in the EX model though

I think it depends on the height of the driver and the seat height. It looks fine to me but my wife finds that if the sun hits it at the right angle it bounces of the infotainment system and right into her eyes. I guess they could have made the angle adjustable, like in an airplane.

I guess I am comparing it to the 9th where they have it a aimed a few degrees towards the driver to make it more user friendly. I just found it to be pointed straight back or a bit to the right.

I wonder if they did it because its a global design and less has to be different for 'right hand drive' countries

I have absolutely no problem with it since its my first vehicle with a screen! It doesn't seem too far out of reach or view, however, I see how it would be more convenient facing the driver especially as a commuter car with only one passenger.

Still looks nicer than the Mazda screens that look like a tablet glued to the top of dashboard!

I have to agree about the Mazda. I Always thought those Mazda ones could be opened and closed or whatever until I looked at one in person'
