Just n FYI...When i picked mine up yesterday i learned of a little unknown option that i personally have not seen published anywhere. There is a tire pressure sensor that turns on a dummy light in the dash when tire pressure gets to low. Another one of thos expensive car features on a not so expensive car.

It is to reset the tire pressure warning light once you fix the issue. The trunk is really cool. With the doors unlocked there is a pressure switch that releases trunk when you lift up on the hatch. There may be a way to remotely do it but i havnt found it yet. Maybe holding down the unlock button on the remote? I'll look into that.

Well my salesman actually informed me of it. He appologized in advance isf he didnt know the features due to the fact mine was the first one that they had received. He must have read the entire owners manual on this thing before hand.


Today i found another cool thing about it. It keeps power to the sunroof and windows untill you open the door. Didnt expect that.

all toyota's do that. my dad's 92 lexus ls400 does, my old 94 camry xle v6 did it (thank god we traded that in my for my tc, hopefully to get here in a couple of days!), and every toyota I've ever riden in or driven has done it.

it's a cool feature, though. I like it.

For those of you that didn't read your owner's manual, there is also a service indicator that will illuminate when its time to change your oil!!!

Don't know...but I'm glad it's a feature! I usually don't notice I'm due for an oil change 'till 1000 miles or so after it was supposed to be done.

My car must hate me...hehe.
