Not sure if this is in here yet, but if you have your windshield wipers on timed interval, if you are stopped the wipers will slow down, and when you start rolling again then will go back to the interval you set.

My 09 doesnt .... maybe some one with a 2010 or 2011 can chime in.... it should though... the HS I had for a loaner had each tire.

This is my first lexus, and my first luxury car i have had a long exposure to. Hopefully I will have the experience of riding in luxury cars for 10+ yrs. Let me rephrase that I will have the experience of riding in luxury cars for 10+ yrs

I got a rags to riches story developing...

Every 2IS has tire pressure sensors in each wheel, check your owner's manual, good info in there...

That's not what he's talking about. He's talking about an individual readout for each wheel, so you can tell at a glance the pressure in each one. (And if the warning goes off, know immediately which tire caused the alarm)

Ahhh...guess I read that wrong, my bad!

Even Toyota is weird like that, a base model Highlander will give you all 5 individual tire pressures, while a fully loaded Limited Avalon will just show a TPMS light...

I didn't read the whole thread so if its already in there i'm sorry but if you hold down the "mode" button on the steering wheel for a few seconds it will turn off the audio system. I find that pretty cool.

I'm not sure if anybody mention this but if your car battery dies, your car's power lock is off. That means anybody can enter your car without a key as it remain unlocked.

I left my headlights on the other day and I went to open my door and I swore I lock it the day before but it the next day I open my car door without a key. The battery was dead.

^ Really? That doesn't make much sense at all. You have a physical key to open the door like in the olden days if your battery dies.

This is not really a feature but more of something that I realized my car did that is cool... The window jam protection... I rolled the window all the way up to my hand, when the window touched my hand it rolled down by itself... And I read the manual and its in there.

U can't lock ur keys in the trunk, if u accidentally drop/lefted it in there then all u have to do is hit the open button again.
