I noticed a few little touches on my '06 (maybe other LX's) that I kind of dig.

On the center console on the pass. side there are little cutouts near the "lid" part that let you plug something in the cig. receptacle, close the lid, and use it outside of the console. The cables/wires don't casuse the lid to not close. Cool!

If you touch the directional for one quick second and release it continues to allow the blinlkers to go for 4 blinks for lane changes. Not htat holding a directional for 3 more sec. isn't a big deal but I thought that was neat.

Has anyone else come across any other neat kind of hidden features on these cars?

When the battery on your Remote Keyless Entry (the buttons on the key) start getting low, you get a warning on the dash that says "RKE Battery Low". Just got it last week

When on cruise control, touching the acc or coast makes EXACTLY 1mph changes (gps tested!). so if the speed limit drops 10mph, I touch it 10 times to decelerate exactly 10mph.

Also, leave your blinker on too long, it will tell you!

Diagnostic mode for the EVIC... gives some cool "extra" info, like digital tach, digital speedo, pedal position, etc.

With the Heritage Edition I got Tire Pressure Monitoring and didn't even know it was part of the "package" until on vacation when I suddenly discovered it rolling through the EVIC settings. That was a cool discovery.

I agree with those 2 things. It is the little things that count!

And once you get the auto headlights mod completed, you can have headlights turn on automatically when you turn on the wipers!!! With a slight starscan adjustment!!

interior lights turn themselves off (when the key is out of the igniton) to avoid draining your battery too much. Same with the glove box light (if you do this mod).

lock out the power windows and the backlighting on the rear and passenger door window switches goes out.

Dang I don't have one!
Does it just hang out in the pocket for the hand pull down? Maybe I can make my own hehe.

No, it's completely inside the hand hold opening. I tried gluing a rubber pad inside of mine but after a while it came loose. The only way to get the real deal Mopar one is to get the whole back plastic section for about $80. Not worth it to me.

I like programing the key entry - exit functions. Programed mine to unlock all doors when the drivers door is opened. No more hitting the clicker to unlock the rear.
