      Suggested sticky-Tips and Tricks

      Hi!

      New to the forum, and researching a potential purchase of a XC60. Currently own a 2016 Kia Optima SXL, and frequent a Kia forum. On there, the moderators created a "Tips and Tricks" fsticky thread, for everyone to share little details about neat features that each of us have found. There's so much on vehicles nowadays that it's impossible to know them all!

      For example, through some digging, I learned that with the Volvo, holding the unlock button on the remote will open all the windows! And holding the lock button on the remote, or holding the button on the car handle will close the windows! Did everyone know that? Maybe so, but I bet there are things that each of you know, that others don't, and would enjoy learning!

      This would also be a great resource for those like me that are as much (if not more) intothe gadgetry of the car than the way it drives or looks!

      Just a thought!

      You didn't know because you don't pay attention when I'm speaking

      BJM,

      We don't typically create a sticky specifically for "Tips & Tricks". but we do regularly create a how-to and important links sticky. It's easy to imagine that if a well-crafted tips & tricks thread were created, it could be linked in that higher level how-to sticky.
