I like how the holders for coathangers above the rear doors have a soft-touch fold in and out feature. I didn't notice this for months after getting the car, until my sister was sitting back there and pointed them out to me. Very nice little detail.

I also like the LED map reading lights, the lights that shine on the console and center cupholder, and the fact that it turns down the driver's side speakers when the stereo is on and the navigation is giving a voice command. Just thoughtful little touches that make the car that much more fun to drive...

I found this out from another thread but for those of you who have navi, just say "I'm hungry!" and it gives you a list of restaurants near by. I didn't believe it until I tried it and it actually works! I thought that was pretty cool. Funny/cool way to impress your passengers.

That's funny. Makes one wonder what else can the navi understand.

I used the voice command to tell the car to switch to radio from the CD player and it faded the screen. It was cool. It seems luxurious.

Or when I change discs, it fades the screen as well.

As long as my Selector is not in the Middle - BOTH Mirrors tilt down.

How funny if the strip clubs would have shown up.

BTW, anyone actually use voice to enter a new destination location? I'm gonna have to pull out the manual, forgot how to do this, or whether you can use the voice, to select a destination by a phone number, instead of the address?

LOL yea that would be funny.

I believe you just say "address" to enter a new destination. But I find this process so tedious with voice because you gotta say so much crap just to have everything entered.

I found a feature today I didn't know you could do....

You can pull out the cup holder in the middle armrest compartment. Not too exciting, but I didn't know you could do it. Since I want to keep the fuzz inside it nice for as long as I can, I figured I'd keep the cup holder out to hold more junk instead of grimying it up with Mt. Dew slime.

Good stuff! Of course the second I pull mine out, I have a passenger who also has a drink with them...

Still wish there'd be enough room there for CDs!

While we're on the middle armrest compartment, did anybody else mention the little light bulb inside that illuminates the compartment? I just noticed it the other day...pretty neat.
