I don't think the CC should be on the left. It was on the right side of my 02 Maxima, my 04 350Z, my mom's 07 Altima Hybrid and the Toyotas my parents and I own/owned (e.g. 91 Camry, 96 Camry, 02 Rav4, 06 Prius). I've even had a Chrysler rental car w/the same type of cruise control lever that Toyota started using on '92+ Camrys.
About the only folks who want it on the left is where on some old GM cars (and some not so old), they totally overloaded the turn signal stalk w/a bunch of stuff including cruise control.
I recall that on JDM cars, on the wheel where radio and cruise controls tend to be mirrored vs. the US, which isn't surprising since they drive on the other side of the road. Also, at least on JDM Toyotas, the stalks switch sides (signal on right, wiper on left).
Re: the small volume buttons, yeah, I wish they were bigger. http://static.cargurus.com/images/site/ ... 02728.jpeg
was what the 02 Maxima's wheel looked like (I don't like this color as it wasn't mine and I didn't have a Maxima SE so I didn't have the goofy white-faced gauges). Its volume buttons were bigger.
The driving range button is near useless. May as well remove it or replace it w/something useful.
