Well.... perhaps it would break in quicker with her driving...
Ok, didn't think about it being cold, and yeah, I am figuring they cleaned it with something, probably something like Armor All
. As for the adjustment, similar to the old Mazda, so that is easy to figure out (as opposed to playing with the climate control for half an hour before finally figuring that out, ha ha.)
And yeah, got the tilt/telescoping wheel figured out, have the same in my Jetta. I really needed telescoping in the old Mazda as I couldn't reach the wheel and still give comfortable leg room. I could only prop an arm on the door sill and hold with the fingers. Now I'm spoiled from my Jetta with a perfect 2 hand driving position.
Can anyone give me an idea about the smart key and starting the vehicle without any electronic gismos? The key removed from the smartkey fob only lets me in the door (went outside with just the key after removing it and couldn't start the car, so I know there isn't anything sensing within that.)
The key thing is just for informational purposes so that I know. I'm old school and hate all this electronic gadgetry in cars today. Give me a manual transmission, no antilock brakes (despise those), a key to turn, knobs on a stereo so I can change stuff without taking my eyes off the road, and for crying out loud, I can flip the stupid mirror myself instead of having the car behind me blind me on every hill when he appears again and it takes too long to dim, LOL.
