    Hi, If one has to select a contact from a connected phone's contact list to place a call, one has to use dial on the dash to do it. It is bit uneasy for me.

    Drivetrain Problems
    I noticed that when I'm stopped on an incline and just idling at a traffic light, my car vibrates slightly and you can feel it in the steering wheel. This is with the AC off. Is it because of the small engine or do I have a mechanical problem that I should take it in the dealer for?
