As far as ergonomics, the paddle design is horrible. making the on/off switch physically part of the +/- rocker makes for a lot of accidental presses. It's really a poor design. Bu tI had gotten careful and thus used to it.

Exactly, I have on numerous occasions meant to press the "-" button to slow it down a notch only to feel the whole rocker wobble and activate the on/off switch. As I said, this is the worst designed steering wheel control interface I have ever used in my entire 55 year life -- absolutely horrid!

I do hope I develop the muscle memory to do this with fewer errors and suspect that in time I will get better at it, but there is simply no excuse for Ford ever letting this t*rd of a design get green lighted...
