Tell us something interesting about your car

i know alot of cars have features that the average person wouldnt know about unless they were told. So post as many features on your car that you think most people dont know it has or you think its cool. Also make sure you post the year and model of your car.

2006 Cobalt SS Supercharged

-Speed sensitive wiper blades
-Oil life monitor that tells you when you need an oil change based on percentages.
-Battery is located in the trunk
-Tells me my average Miles Per Gallon
-Speed sensitive steering, i really like this feature on the highway, makes it really easy to control at high speeds. But at the same time, if you make a fast jerk of the wheel, you will get a stronger response.
-10 inch subwoofer in the trunk from the factory

i think thats about it

Re: Tell us something interesting about your car

2002 maxima SE 6 speed:
it has a heated steering wheel, it tells me my avg miles per gallon and how many more miles i can drive until my gas tank is empty. it has a reverse lock-out collar on the shifter like a corvette to keep you from hitting Reverse when going into 6th gear and it comes with a stock 8" sub on the rear deck lid behind the passengers heads. that's all i got.

Re: Tell us something interesting about your car

My S2000 doesn't have any fancy features. It's just a pure sports car

Re: Tell us something interesting about your car

1991 3000GT SL:

You can change the stiffness of the suspension electronically from inside the car

The transmission can be put into a race or economy setting

The sides on the seats can be adjusted for your driving so that the either hold you firm in the seat for spirited driving or spread far apart for a more comfortable ride

Re: Tell us something interesting about your car

RX-8

-It has speed sensitive steering
-the sport package has a slightly stiffer suspension and it is adjusted to go a bit stiffer when you remove the dsc and traction.
-it has a speed sensitive radio, faster you go and the more outside noise you have the louder the stereo gets without raising the volume (To a point)
-The car has slits where the splash guard for the tires are to allow for more cooling.
-eats oil
-eats gas
-my version of the RX-8 (the sport package) is considered the Type-s in japan
-Fuel cut is at 9.3k but with ecu tunning you can get it all the way to 10k
-the hood, trunk, and doors are made of aluminum.
-you can change the color of the odometer when you have your headlights on, they change from the white to a nice dark blue which is really cool at night.
-the drive shaft is Carbon Fiber

thats all i can think of for now

Re: Tell us something interesting about your car

-the front seats can recline back 45 degrees...so basically you can chill in the back seat n put your feet up.
-it's technically a hatchback, not a coupe
-you can edit the head unit to display a custom message when you turn it on.
-during acceleration there is a whistling sound, resembling an aftermarket intake sound
-one touch up and down driver/passenger windows
-stock factory sound system includes 2 tweeters and 4 speakers. 160watt output.
-the a/c isnt that cold =/
-the glass roof actually exceeds safety requirements
-toyota's first knee airbag
-sensor in front passenger side controls deployment of that airbag
-the rear seats can recline completely down to make the tC appear as a "two seater" also for increased "trunk" room.
-tC stands for touring coupe...

thats all i can think of right now

Re: Tell us something interesting about your car

-All manual NSX's until 1995 had manual steering.
-NSX's did not have keyless entry standard until 2003
-NSX's comes with a twin disk clutch from the factory until 1997
-Automatic NSX's are only rated at 250hp and can only rev to 7500. The engine has different cams, and internals and tuning parameters. ( Don't ever buy a auto if you ever plan to have any fun with a NSX =) )
-Highest known mileage NSX that is still on the stock block is currently at 375,000 and its still running strong.
-When it rains really hard, water gets into the engine bay from the rear engine garnish at the bottom of the glass. This will cause a nasty misfire as the water gets into the ignition coils of rear banks. ( ask me how I know )

GM has had that since the C5 Corvette and 4th Gen F-body, and in all the trucks. My 2001 truck has that. It's a nice feature.
