Remember the days when Chrysler interiors were wall-to-wall shiny plastic? It’s quickly becoming a fading memory because, with Klaus Busse, Head of Interior Design, at the helm, the company’s cabins are among the best in the business. As Mr. Busse joins us tonight, we’ll ask him what innovations we can expect as future generations of vehicles roll off the line. Per usual, we’ll get into the hot topics of the week. Joining John McElroy in studio with the best insider discussion in the industry is his co-host Peter De Lorenzo, the Autoextremist, and Drew Winter from WardsAuto.com.

    the guest said he doesn’t think the center arm rest needs to be adjustable but it absolutely does. I have a 2008 Malibu that I had to remove the top of the arm rest so I could turn the steering wheel without hitting my elbow. You adjust the seat to get the best driving position which includes leg room, head room and recline position. If I now raise the seat to make the arm rest comfortable my head is now touching the headliner. Along with the center arm rest needing to be adjustable, the steering wheel needs to have tilt and telescoping adjustability.
