    You wouldn't want to tow with it. They are thick steel and threaded into another steel subframe component (not the bumpers), they're not going to budge. Fine for recovery.

    On the subject of battery longevity, I've used dielectric grease on the terminals and it keeps the battery and battery terminals completely corrosion free.

    It's cost cutting, no doubt. A non-touch LCD is cheaper to produce than a touchscreen, and the difference adds up over hundreds of thousands of units.
