How many versions of the 1st gen are there: Comfort, Business and...?
In what country?


Sweden. The Comfort version does not come with the Rockford/Fosgate sound system, for example. I remember test driving a Comfort version and saw that it had a lot of "blanked" buttons which had functions in the Business version.

This would be useful for me when I have the dog in the boot on a sunny day.

I strongly oppose to leaving anything alive in the car. We had just yesterday another death of a kid left in a car.
A car is like a green house, it gets hot really fast.
If you cannot bring your dog into your destination, then at least tie him to the outside of the car at the shady side.

just my $0.02

Or switch on the airco using the app.

Depending on the situation:
If any of the systems included (App, car control, Aircon, ...) should fail, the situation can become very nasty or even a danger of life.

I therefore would trust this approach only for max. 20 minutes or so.

Did anyone change their turn signal sound?
I just did and like it, now I drive more with the windows open in the nice weather.
The 2nd sound is a bit louder.

Also I do enjoy the Auto Hold feature. The brake pedal pressure is a bit stronger then my previous car and I found myself creeping every so often while waiting for the traffic lights. Now I don't have to worry about that anymore.

If only Phevy was not so forgetful :cry:
On my wish list is a preference option of what to default to on power up!

Automatic central locking

All of my recent cars have applied the central locking automatically when you drive off. I have seen elsewhere that the Outlander doesn't have this feature, as it is illegal in some countries. (???!!!!!)

It is easy to forget to lock the doors, so I have put some small stickers on the inside lock controls on the driver and passenger doors - red for unlocked and green for locked. That way, I am easily reminded if I have forgotten to lock the doors.

In general, the security of the factory locking system is severely limited. The only thing needed is to read out the chip in your key and it is simple enough to generate the appropriate signal. There are tricks to do so.
Enhanced security could be an additional "ignition" lock like Cobra offers, or a physical steering wheel lock like by Bear Lock.


You can buy a cheap 'wallet' to keep your key in that blocks radio waves, so a scanner can't read and clone it when the key is in the house. Don't forget a second one for the spare key!

Still with the OEM Toyo's.
(the OEM rims have the Nokian Hakkapeliitta R3 SUV on them)
