My '04 Mazda Tribute did that, so I wasn't too surprised.

I was wondering if you got something. I always easily fill up anticipation and speed. However I can not for the life of me get more than 2 leaves for shifting.

Well, if you have a 5 speed, you just shift really early. Not surehow with the automatic though.

As far as I can tell, the automatic doesn't have one for that category. I've gotten 5 leaves for speed and anticipation, but no trophy.

1. Thankfully early (but shocking) warnings both for the Beltminder & for a door ajar while on the road (with the red I and indicator on the dash and LCD respectively).
2. Ability to cancel any notifications on the trip computer LCD early (i.e. door ajar) by pressing the OK button on the left 5-way.
3. The rear defroster also includes the area where the rear window wiper is in is rest position (helpful for getting that thing kickstarted early in winter).
4. Automatic climate control's "Defroster Max" button. One touch access to all your favorite defrosting methods (i.e. front / rear defrosters, heated mirrors, maximum heat, maximum fan).
5. The 2x press on the rear hatchback releases the rear hatch, so if your hands are full of groceries, you can kick the hatch up with no hands (although requires balance practice).

I never knew about it either till my daughter found it! I was like "why did you touch the keys?" I didn't daddy, you just push right here. Nothing like being schooled by a 7 year old!

doesnt amount to much but today i discovered i could use the "pockets" made to the rear hatch trim panel to shut the hatch without having to put my hands on the outside of it. Hey, its the little things that matter..
