It turns off after 10 minutes or so automatically. You can turn it back on by hitting hte power button as often as you like, but it won't stay on by itself.

I've had my 3-door for about 5 days now and I still don't know how to work my rear window wiper -_-.

I also didn't know about that folding mirror, pretty nifty.

Fold in mirrors have been out for a long time now. I'm sure that your last car had it. For your rear wiper, push your wiper switch forward, not up or down. Push forward once to wipe, forward again to spray.

Thanks for the explanation on the arm rest (center) as I had accidentally partially opened and it wouldn't close until fully opened lol... thought I had bust it or it was sticking. Makes sense now !

Will be checking the visor extensions tho...

the arm rest staying up thing is probably the most annoying thing on the car IMO. whenever i reach into it and grab something out of that little tray that is under there i don't open the cover all the way so it sticks up when i go to close it. oh well

I read this 3 times and still don't understand the senario you're stating.

When you're driving with your windshield wipers on (not in the intermittent setting) and then come to a stop, the wipers slow down as if you had them on the intermittent setting. When the car is no longer stopped the windshield wipers speed back up. Driving = normal wiper speed. Stopped = intermittent wiper speed.

Any settings with wipers active, you slow down/stop they either turn off or go really slowly so your not at a light with the wipers still going really fast.

Thank you. I've not noticed that about the wipers. But then again, its Seattles dry season so I've only driven in the rain a few times since buying the car in May.

the whole visor thing reminds me when my brother in law was trying to sell me his 2006 GTI. "The only thing I hate about this car is the stupid tiny sun visors! if only they came out a little bit.... oh.... WHOA!"

Thanks MonthOLDpickle:

MP3's is the way to go, shows Album, song and artist, windows media player will put them in either format.

And the sun-visor does slide/extend on a rail, that's nice too, hadn't tried that before either.

here's another one thing i found out a coupla days ago.. did you guys know that after you turn the sunroof dial to MAX (SLIDE).. you can turn it a lil beyond max.. and if you hold it in that position for about 2 seconds.. the lil part of the sunroof that sticks out will go further inside!

i had no clue it could do that!
