I don't know if this was said. But the clothes hooks next to the grab handles above the rear windows. If you push them up they will lock in place. No more items sliding off the hooks! Small I know but I tried lol. 1 month later...

Went out to the garage to check. Thanks. Did not know this in 1 year of ownership. Of course, wife said, "My 6 year old Volvo does that too!" I added 310 points to your rep. score.

I've heard this too, and I got to see it today, as there was a Limited behind me and we were both turning left. I kept an eye on the DRL and blinker.

I was behind my wife's car yesterday evening and when I used my blinkers she noticed this - and asked me to keep the car running. When I got into the driveway she wanted the blinkers on and couldn't believe the DRL's went off when the blinkers were on. I kept telling her everything was ok and she insisted I should take it in for service. Thanks for posting this.

Ha ha, it is perfectly alright and doesn't need service. It is to increase the visibility of your turn signal to other drivers.

The Pacifica did that, plus the Audi with their DRL LED too.

Re: What options on your GC did you discover weeks after?

I found a couple of new features with the 730N this week. There's a DVR like repeat function for live music. You can set songs or artists as a favorite and you'll get an alert anytime they're playing on any satellite radio station.

Also the bottom left hand button on the remote pops the flipper door glass. You have to open the remote and hit the button with another button though. Looks like they must have deleted it at some point as a feature, like they did the remote roll down windows.

I noticed that when the battery in my FOB came loose and I took it apart to jimmy it back into place. I haven't tried them but noticed that there are many other potential options there. I believe one of them is for remote start. For some reason I'm supposed to have remote start but the button setup doesn't allow me to click it. I'm not too bothered though, I never really use remote start. The pushstart is more than fine for me. Plus I have my seating set to move to my last setting when I start the car and the move backwards to allow for room when I shut the car off and wish to exit. So remote start I assume would make life more difficult for me when entering the vehicle due to this setting I chose. I will talk to the dealer about it when I take my car in for service though in about 5k kms.

The remote start will still allow you to use your drivers settings, and easy entry feature. Once you get inside and hit the start button again, the seat moves back to your driving position.

Do you have the 730 RHR or RER? I have this feature on my portable Sirius and I like, but I don't think the RER has this feature.
