You have to separate the weight of the manuals into two parts.

The safety warnings must be carried with the vehicle, so every driver can read them before operating the vehicle. Those two and half...

But, of course, after the "new" wears off, it really is just a car. The difference...

The only dumb questions are the ones that are not asked. :)

The ODB connector is under the dash, in the drivers foot-well. Above and slightly to the right of the parking-brake pedal.

You don't need a gallon of the stuff. A quart is enough to last me for several years, even with using it on several cars. Any of the spray bottles will do. I bought one of these: Amazon.com: 303...

303 Aerospace Protectant works well on the black. They sell it at amazon, among other places. It also protects against UV.

Any kind of wax will just melt in the summer heat and make a mess.

I used to drive a pickup truck that got about 10 mpg. When I started using a Camry hybrid that got about 35mpg, that reduced my fuel bill from about $7000/year to about $2000/year. That Camry wore...

When the car in front of you stops from 70mph, and has no brake lights, it gets pretty hairy in any case. I suppose the skill is to avoid those situations. A little extra following distance can be...

Yes.

If you brake gently, or even moderately, the brakes will very likely last the life of the car. If you brake like a NASCAR driver, you probably wouldn't buy a hybrid in the first place.

Probably, neither of those. The ECU controls the fuel injectors, so it should not need to monitor or measure the flow. That is, the Engine Controller operates the fuel injectors, telling them when...

The most efficient strategy is to avoid braking at all, and to use the minimum amount of brake when it is needed.

I put my wireless Qi charger on top of my dresser, in the bedroom. My S5 phone generally holds charge all day. I do keep a charger cord in the car, just in case, but have never yet had to use it.

Think of it as the sound of money being pumped back into your gas tank.
And, if it still annoys you, turn on some music.
