wow... I never would've noticed. I keep forgetting to switch off the rear wiper though and it keeps wiping even after the rain stops sometimes

@techwarrior... Also, it's the same thing from N to D. You don't have to press the button. It's convenient since I put my car in N at stop lights and all I have to do is pull the lever back when the signal turns green.

One thing I did like after I bought my car was that the stereo stays On even after turning off the engine as long as the door isn't opened. I find myself listening to the radio for longer than I need to now

I found the "eco" scoring mode by accident... unfortunately every time I get on the autobahn I lose my "speed" leaves because I'm driving 90+mph.

When you're in the average MPG mode, hit the right arrow. If you get five leaves in all three (shifting, anticipation, and speed) you get a trophy!
