JimsterG Another little nice feature is the 'courtesy wipe' after using the windshield washers.

mp223 I don't know if it was designed this way or simple coincidence, but typically in the morning when there is dew on the front driver's and passenger's windows, when you speed up past 20mph, the airflow between the A pillar and side view mirrors is strong enough to blow the dew off the window. Kinda nice.

The Fiat 500 I rented had the most annoying belt minder in the world. Start the car and God forbid if the passenger didn't have his belt on in 0.6 seconds. BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP BEEPBEEPBEEPBEEP BEPBEPBEPBEPBEP!

RonMaiden I like the option to have just the fogs on with the parking lights;with my 4Runner it was a simple wire jump in the fuse box under the hood to achieve this.

I have to try this! I always wished there was a way to warm up my right hand that's forced to be on the shifter knob. Thanks.

kevinxb If you have intelligent access, you don't have to push anything if your keys are with you. The hatch will unlock when you press the button. And if you don't unlock the doors, the hazards will flash once when the hatch is closed to let you know the car is still locked.

Wow, that's awesome. I always thought I had to unlock the whole thing. the car really stands out at night with the interior lights.

Yep. That's what I'm talking about. Such a simple thing, and yet so very handy to just be able to open the trunk whenever.

I didn't know it did that so tried it on my sedan but the trunk opens only when the button on the fob is pressed twice.... Is this a programming issue w/ the fob?
