    Dashboard mounted shift lever

    How easy are the newer dash mounted shift levers to use (C6/7 quad) ? I have only used column mounted levers. I'm thinking Chrysler/Dodge or Toyota.

    I use the Sure Grip adapted shifter on my Honda Odyssey.

      I have a Pacifica. It's a large knob and very easy to turn.

        I use the adopted shifter mentioned above. While in theory it does work, it is difficult as a quad, and can exacerbate or lead to shoulder or hand problems. The force required is not exactly effortless and requires one to apply force downward through the palm on an outstretched arm, which places significant leverage forces on the shoulder. If one has to jockey back and forth a couple of times, as in a parking spot or other, it can be a downright pain in the ass. I used it for a couple of years until I could take it no longer and then had an electronic shifter installed called smart shift, which is in aftermarket product used to allow simple pushing of a button. The new Pacifica, as mentioned does have a large knob which can always be fitted with an additional device for turning leverage. But if one has a vehicle where this cannot be utilized or one is buying an older vehicle, the smart shift is the way to go.

            Have to admit I like the Pacifica, Hertz has them as rentals if you want to try it out.

            half joking the
            Pacifica gearshift knob is bit close to the volume knob, feels like changing the volume will end up changing gear

            First vehicle I've ever driven with this kind of gear shifting arrangement. Just me being crazy, but wish they could have incorporated it into the steering wheel somehow.
