What happens when a light on the instrument panel comes on or goes off? you look at it - taking your eyes off the road. The 'eco' light (notification of cylinder deactivation feature being dis/activated) located just below the tachometer regularly comes on and off causing a distraction. Asked multiple dealers, they have no way of disabling this distracting light. At first, I figured I would be accustomed to the light going on and off all the time; having had the car for 9+ months it still annoys me. I have no issue with the eco feature, just the stupid, distracting light.
