question of the day guess the car with backwards buttons

An anonymous tipster sent us this photo of a car on the floor of the New York Auto Show. The buttons for the door locks and windows are installed upside down. Guess the car and we’ll send you some swag.

    I'd like to guess it's a Daimler "Smart" car just to bask in the irony. Best guess: Alfa something. MiTo. Something like that.

    I'm surprised that the design would allow it to be installed backwards or upside down.

    The buttons aren't backwards. The labels on the buttons are backwards. Since I have to guess, I'd guess it to be the Honda Civic.

    the stupidity here (root cause) is not the factory that let this out the door, or even the oversight of the prep morons for the auto show.. it is for violating one of the key principles of the toyota production method, poka-yoke. the panel should be designed so it can't be installed wrong! even if mirror image for both sides of the car, there are numerous methods used to prevent this issue. none of this is new, and was taught to me circa 1995 in silicon valley.. so what exactly is chrysler fiat's excuse in 2015???? some things never change..
