A lot of suggestions so far. I'm going to take a break now, but I'll try to put all of these in some kind of order and add any new ones later. Thanks

The majority of these are in the various owners manuals.

20. You can lock your keys in the car! If your doors are locked while the rear hatch is open, you can leave your keys in the car and close up the hatch. You have now managed to lock your keys in the car! (wrumbarger)

that just made my day! thanks !!

I first thought it was a type of flying kite, hence why I looked it up. That does seem like a good place to put spare bulbs though, thanks.

As far as the starter key goes (you don't need to hold it until the car starts), that's actually a very common feature in new cars. The 09' Aveo did it, both PTs did it, the F-150, etc.

Oh, and add "How to disable esp" to that list. Kudos goes to a few members of our community for that one...

Some of us "more experienced" drivers may not be aware of these "new fangled, great googly moogly" features.

Is that different from 16. ?

I had to paraphrase, I think the original post from wrumbarger was funnier .

Now, if only someone could come up with the intended use of the slot on the inside of the glove box lid, I'd be happy...
