So I've been driving my car for about two weeks now and I have to say I have found some awesome features that you don't normally think about. So far I have found:

-If the front wipers are on and you put the car in reverse, the rear wiper will wipe the window, without being switched on.
-Hill assist, Wasn't expecting that in a car this size.
-The door handles ARE the locks, push the handle in to lock the doors. Pretty neat. And they look like old rollup window handles
-If you have the headlights on during the daytime, the gauge lights / dash lights will stay off until it gets dark.
-I haven't put a lot of thought into this, but the wipers seem to wipe faster when you are moving than when you are stopped.

Other thoughts: I really like this car... It's costing about $30 to fill up where my old car was costing $49. I bought this car as a sacrifice to start saving money, and it really hasn't been a sacrifice at all.

Anyways, are there any other neat things I need to check out?

Cool items are on the 500. Was surprised myself, how features were on the car, for under 21 grand. You'll keep discovering them too.

Another new 500 studio manager, at our 500 dealership. That makes 3 now. Was showing him all the things the Tom tom, Blue and Me features do. The features, also in the Eco cluster.

LT,
I did not remember reading about the rear wiper while in reverse. I thought I had an electrical issue when it happened the other day.

My wife and I have been having fun with the Blue&Me phone integration. It's funny hearing the female voice read the text messages my wife sends me, verbal response to text works well too.
