Re: Hire cars are a mixed blessing
"The worst experiences I have had with hire cars is when the bastards have swapped the indicator and washer stalks to be opposite of what I'm used to. Bet I'm not the only one."
Would that have been going from RHD to LHD? I think the intent is to have the indicators on the side away from the gear lever so you can control both at the same time. At least that's my experience coming back from Merka and renting a Toyota, comparing it to my Honda at home.
