1) This car has "rear foglight" which is a very bright light near the left brake light. Activate it in heavy fog or rain to help people see you, or if you have someone tailgating you at night.
2) You can also turn on the left parking lights and right parking lights independently and leave them on when you turn the car off. This is useful if you are parking your car in a dark road. Turn the side closest to the street on so other cars can see your car easier. It won't drain the battery.
3) You don't have to push the Park button. Simply open the door and it will automatically go to PARK. Be careful when driving less than 5 MPH...if you open your door at 5mph or less, it will also shift abruptly to park
4) The intelligent cruise control and forward emergency braking is very smart. But I wish it would brake sooner, but it brakes when it does (very late) on purpose, because it knows it can stop you safely and give the person behind you more time to not hit you.
5) Reset the inTouch system if it becomes slow by holding the volume/power button down for a few seconds.
6) There is no way to turn off the headlights at night, nor the DRL's...
7) Your car makes all sorts of weird noises hours after you've turned it off. Easier to hear if you park in the garage..but it's very weird to walk in the garage several hours after you get home and you hear the qx30 making humming noises. The manual says it's normal and related to the turbo.
8) I wish the steering wheel volume control was on the left side, not the right
9) Tap up on the cruise all the way, and it goes up by 5 MPH, only halfway up goes up by 1 MPH. Same for tapping down.
10) Half tap on the blinker turns your blinker on for 3 flashes.
11) Small hidden storage bin under passenger seat.
12) With Intelligent Cruise control running and engaged (with no foot on the accelerator or brake). It relates to when a vehicle "cuts" in front of you, or pulls into the same lane just ahead of you, only to turn-off into another street or intersection seconds later. I.e. they're only in radar range for a brief moment, and then they're clear of your radar.
If you do "nothing" in this situation, your QX30 will slam on the brakes fairly hard. Rightfully so -- that's it's job. You could reach for the ICC lever to cancel the current auto-driving operation. Or touch the brakes yourself. Or just let the QX30 reduce you to roughly half your speed in a fraction of a second (and annoy you and all your passengers).
But instead, you can gently press the accelerator (that's the counter-intuitive part). This overrides ICC, and prevents that sudden jerking. Once the other vehicle has pulled away out of the ICC radar range, you can release your foot again, and resume your cruising...
