Stirling trucks are f**k. if you open the drivers door without the Maxi's (park brake) on the f**k horn comes on and doesnt stop until you close the door or pull the maxi's on. Freeks you out the first time it happens.

My Nissan Maxima Auto would not go into Top overdrive till the engine had warmed up.
To save the auto, real dumb as it rev's higher when not in top gear O/D.

revs dont always equal bad tho, going into overdrive puts extra load on things particularly at slow speeds.
alot of things wont give u full range of VCT until operating temperature is reached...


also commos which self lock - thats a feature u can turn off using the cluster...

and whats so bad about the A/C always being on? it doesnt really make that much difference to most cars (1.5L auto's aside)

Cars which won't allow you to remove the key until you're in park or Neutral.
WTF?
Car stops due to gearbox issue, cannot change gear, and...gotta leave the car unlocked with the keys in it. Great idea guys

Nissan Silvias are like that.

Plus they are as hard as f**k to get in and out of, and I'm not that tall.

I don't know of any auto cars that will let you start them in a gear other than P or N. So whats the issue? Turn it off, if someone steals it, they're probably doing you a favour anyway if the car's that f**k....
