I guess you could put the magical cooling glovebox as well... although there's not much room in there for a 6 pack

I always thought it funny that VW boasted about this with their new Passat when Saabs had it for years.

Default Speed Warning Setting... set to 150 Km/h.

Helpful here in Ontario, where 50 Km/h over the speed limit gets you a "racing" suspension, $10,000 fine, and your car impounded! No ifs ands or buts.

The speed warning is one of my favorites.

The rear wiper comes on when you have the main wipers on and put the car in reverse.

The front reverse side lights so you can see what's happening at both sides of the car when you're backing up. This is on the older 9-5s (<=2001?) only.

When you have the trailer wiring, the SID also informs you when one of the trailer lights is not working.

Side repeaters(blinkers) on the front wings(fenders). Becoming more popular in the U.S. The new Malibu has them(Opel based car)

The small button for th eside mirror - this feature is only on cars with memory seats, the same control unit is needed to rememebr where to reset the mirror to.

In fact that is the other features. The memory seats also has memory mirris. Took me a while to realise that until I noted the mirror moving around.

How do you work the seater programmer thingy on the side I have been holding down the M and pressing 1 because if I press 2 the seat and mirror start moving on its own and I cant program it for number 2 or 3.

I've had the same issue with my old 9-5. It's the memory switch that'll have to be replaced at some point.

KIAs also have that feature wjhere if hit hit anything bigger than a shoebox your life also disapears befire your eyes.


Seriously, I actually love the heated wing mirrors, even in OZ they are great on winters mornings, and even though I haven't used mine it is actually great to have a cassette deck, but the highlight that everyone loves an dI know it was sort of mentioned in th eSIDs dispaly is "Low Washer Fluid" what a hoot! Nothing worse than finding out when th ewindow is dirtiest that teh bottle is empty.

ah! i did not know they were linked!


found another wiper trick on the wagon. if you have rain sensing front wipers and you turn them on, the rear wiper also swipes once even if the rear wiper switch is off.

also just discovered that the tape deck has an automatic head cleaning feature. they must have fixed that at my 60k service.

I can't get that one to work. I assume that all you have to do is put it in reverse and hit the button?
