Unfit to lock

20120504-004417.jpg

Found in my girlfriend’s Honda Fit.

I like Honda.  My first car was a red Honda Civic LX.  The dashboard was laid out very intuitively.  Simple, clean, and highly usable.  Lately, Hondas have lost the art of good design.

Two buttons, and I have no idea what the hell I’m supposed to do.  Am I crazy to think that it’s fairly universal that pushing down on a button would ‘Lock’ and pushing up on a button would ‘Unlock’ a car?  Instead, we get this annoyingly designy icon of door and key.

Stop me if I’m wrong here, but keys lock and unlock doors right?  So which one is it?  How about a plain old ‘key lock’ icon for the part of the button you’re supposed to push to lock, so I don’t have to test out the button every time I sit in the driver’s seat?

Don’t even get me started on the other button.
