If you're on a hill, and have the car in drive (CVT), the car will hold your spot so you don't roll backwards when you move your foot to the gas. I think it's called Hill Assist (or something close).
^ however, it holds only for a couple of seconds.
The USB thing is great! I was about to buy an iPod at a Pawn Shop, you guys saved me again, thanks!
I am using a 64Gb Usbstick, needs Fat32 to work. Works flawless with currently about 30Gb Mp3.
I put only 255 Mp3's per folder!
Ok I got one. Not really a quirk but more of a hidden feature you probably didn't know.(I didn't).
Winter is coming for us on the northern half of the globe so you can try this one soon.
To augment heater performance the Mirage is equipped with an electric heating pad that is positioned in front of the heater core in the HVAC case. It warmes the air flowing to and through the heater core so it gives warm air quicker plus some of the heat gets passed on to the coolant circulating inside the heater core through this flow of warm air helping with engine warmup time.
Both automatic and manual A/C systems got it.
It is called PTC heater (Positive Temperature Coefficient) and it will operate under the following conditions:
-Blower fan on
-Temperature setting: any except MAX cool
-Outside temp 59 degree F or lower (ambient temp sensor is at top of lower grill opening on driver side)
-Engine coolant temp 167 degree F or lower
-Generator output 70% or less
It has 4 heating elements controlled by 3 relays. One of the relays run 2 of the elements and the other 2 has their own elements to operate.
These three relays and three 40 amp fuses are located in the sub relay/fuse box under hood right infront of the battery.Go check it! It's there! You know you want to.
This explains why last winter the few times I used the heater (Florida here) I got pretty much instantanious heat.
