Yes, the cars got all the "intelligent" features you can think of! The manual trans version won't start if you haven't pressed the clutch! And the passenger seat belt light won't turn on if there's no passenger sitting... etc. Btw, speaking of features, I just love the opening of the driver door from inside without opening the lock first!! At first this was a small thing, but when driving other cars, I realize how good it is! These japs think of everything!
Yes, the price looks good for a "good condition" car. Take good care of it and it won't let you down!
Btw, just for info... went from isb to lhr and back (on motorway). It was a good drive. While crossing the salt range, also experienced the car's feature of down-shifting while going DOWN a slope!! I hope this feature is available in all auto-trans cuz it's a life-saver!!
Also realized another thing... the speed in o/d (4th gear) increases if u keep on going steady... so probably the torque conversion is adjusted according to the drive. This doesn't matter much on petrol as the car computer is probably designed for petrol fuel and takes care of it. But on cng, this makes a lot of difference. So if I change to o/d (4th) around 90-100 kmh, the car won't go more than 110kmh on o/d. But after a minute or two... it'll slowly start climbing and even cross 120! Saw this happening multiple times, even if the road was slightly steep!
Also, the car performs best (particularly on cng) when the pedal is floored sloooooowly. Might be due to the fuel overflow (or whatever it is called) and/or maybe it might be easier for the central computer to work out everything!
