    My Lancer has it, too!

    And try to tilt a little bit the windshield wipers switch. What will it do?

    I'm sure most people have found this, but with the USB plugged into the stereo, when you turn off your car and turn it back on, it picks up where you left off. It also does this if you turn the stereo off completely which is kind of cool I noticed something I'm not sure is normal and not sure how it does this but... When I start the car and take the parking break off, the car leans forward, even with the breaks on. I like it. Kinda like she's hyped up and itchy to get going

    That feature is imported over from Euro cars. It's for lane changing on highways.

    Well that explains some of the engine noise. Good to know.
