Let's take a second to remind ourselves of some of the smaller things we may forget about but add a nice touch to our cars that can sometimes make a big difference. I keep forgetting to tell people about the leg cushion extension in my car. It seems like something really small but it honestly goes a long say in comfort. I have mine slightly extended and it has just always been that way but it feels really good where it's at. Without it the seat is still nice, just not AS comfortable as it could be. Anyone else find small things around the car like that?

The seat extender is a great feature. Speaking of small things, I appreciate the LED mood light that shines gently on the center console at night. Provides just enough light to see but not obtrusive. There are many small toughtful touches throughout the car.:D

Maybe we could take this topic to appreciate the small things we add to our cars that makes them more practical?

1. Auto sunshade? How do you get it on auto? I just put mine up when I want it.
2. My mirrors have never (not once) tilted down when I backed up.
5. My doors stay unlocked when I unlock them.
11. Only if/when I'm on the highway doing highway speeds. Other than that I'm averaging about 22-23mpg.

Read the manual brohemiuth.

1. Auto sunshade in the rear window goes down when you put the car in reverse, then comes back up.
2. If you take your mirror selector and leave it on one of the mirrors as if you were adjusting it. When you put it in reverse they will go down.
5. If you go into your settings you can enable to auto re lock feature and select 15, 30, and 60 seconds.
11. I get 14 mpg. Granted my car idles more than it moves.

Oh ya! Now it's getting good!


22-23 mpg is about right as an average with A/C on, zipping and zooming around.
29-31 mpg hwy 75 mph again popping up to 80 and such. I don't pay for gas, it's a free ride all around. Which is why I'm so impressed with mileage.


My first trip was to New Orleans on business. Every night I would read all three manuals, make notes, adjust, and repeat. It took days!


12 GDI = Gas Direct Inject 14,000 psi like a diesel engine
13 I second the motion for the forward seat cushion, great for hwy.
14 Auto wipers = Fail dumb idea, like auto seat belts.
15 Trunk size and weight capacity is epic for car
16 First aid kit looks cooler when you stick it to the trunk lid. Like BMW.
17 Did you know you can put a sticky pad on the forward slide compartment and still opens.
18 Floor matt clips front and back! Oh the simple things!
19 THE CLOCK that's the first thing everyone likes. Crossing time zones is cool when the hands spin around.

the reverse tilting mirror will only work when the L/R switch is set to either position.. center position, they turn off

well that sucks. I always try to make sure neither are selected so they won't move if I accidentally hit it or something. Guess I will flip it and see. I'm learning new things about my car today :D

A couple other nice features.....

20. Mirrors unfold and perimeter lights shine as you approach.
21. Heated steering wheel (especially after the crappy winter here in Chicago area)
22. Ventilated front and rear seating (knowing how how the summer will be here in Chicago area)
23. Smart cruise control that will bring to stop
24. Anti-fog/mist detection on inside front windshield
25. Not an iFan, but for those who are, nice to be able to tag a song to purchase later on iTunes
26. Blind spot detection
