Turn off the LCD screen for the first ten miles or so. Get used to driving the car before you turn that thing on. It can be a little distracting at first. Turn it back on the next day, Come on, you can wait a day, right?BRUCE BERRY said:I pick up my #4 (new numbering system - no nav system) 2005 today. what were the things you wish you had done first when your got your Prius?
Maybe it depends on the carwash; i.e. "neutral" if the car moves through it while being washed, "park" if the car sits still while it's being washed.Saruman said:I don't understand the neutral requirement for carwashes.

Some car washes (pretty uncommon these days I think) have all the equipment stationary and move your car through it like an assembly line. I think most of them clamp onto one of your front wheels and drag you through the machines. I remember when I was a kid, that some of them had a chain and hook that the attendent attached to the front of the frame to drag the car through. There were guides to keep your wheels on track.Saruman said:I don't understand the neutral requirement for carwashes. I put mine in PARK by pushing the park button and have no problems.
