If nothing else, it means that the people who made this car didn't give much thought to intuitive interface design.
I drive a Seat Alhambra 1.9Tdi which has 115bhp and an automatic gearbox.

I am happy to help you with all your questions. I am not a qualified mechanic but seem to be better at fixing my car than even the most experienced garages.

I have lots of friends here and very much enjoy talking with you all.

Always remember, a motor car is a serious tool and should be treated with respect. Put your safety first, always.

If you have a warning (simple stuff like seatbelts fastened?/do you want internal sweep disabled? or more serious stuff like tyre pressure warnings) this will illuminate and you press the OK button on the steering wheel to remove the warning.

They should have put the "OK" button next to the warning message or alternatively should have something like "OK?" to indicate it's not a notification but a prompt for action.

In fact, if they had used that display real estate effectively, they would have enough space for something much more intuitive like "Clear message?"
