I really really really like the climate control/ temp gauge.
The key fob looks just like the 08 key fob. I thought the 09 was going to have a keyless 'button' start like the Prius or is that only available in the unlimited?
The power outlet... is in the back?? Great!!!
I am guessing this is the 'U' package?
Wish I had the money to upgrade!!!
Yes, this is the 28U package.
The buttons on the steering wheel is to control what's displayed on the EVIC and to change your personal EVIC settings.
The cruise control stalk is on the right side of the steering wheel. I assume this stalk is the same as the '08. The '08 and '09 LX vehicles have this same cruise control stalk. The nice thing is it's integrated into the steering wheel so it turns along with the steering wheel. You can change the cruise control without taking your hands off the steering wheel.
On the key fob, the button with the rounded arrow with the X2 is the remote start button. I've had this on my '08 Dodge Magnum and now on my '09 Dodge Charger. You press this button twice from 300 ft. or closer and it will start the vehicle and lock all the doors. You unlock the car, get in, stick the key in the ignition slot, turn it to start position, and only then will you be able to drive the car. A great feature in the cold winter.
The power outlet is on the 2nd row underneath the vents. You can see it in the pic of the 2nd row. I had this power outlet in my '07 Dodge Nitro. Really loved it. The LX vehicles don't have it.
I'm glad for the power liftgate feature. Was this feature available in the '08s? I know they didn't have it in 2006 or 2007.
I like the flip open hard cover of the power outlets in front. This thing is a gas guzzler. Hope it gets better with more miles. Would have preferred the Hemi but I didn't have a choice since this was a pilot vehicle.
Here's a pic of the cruise control stalk on an '08 Dodge Magnum.
