Lightbulb Features you never knew about

After recently seeing someone mention liking their tilt and telescopic steering steering column, I thought for sure this was something for newer models. Mine just has a single lever under the column that frees the mechanism to tilt up and down...

Or so I thought until I pulled on the damned thing! WTF? I love this!

What other features have you learned about after the fact? Little things that improve your experience.

How about the button on the left rear wall that you can push to turn off the interior lamps. Available on the cargo vans starting in 2018.

Yep, My 2016 has it, I was very squeaky when I first pulled the steering wheel outward, Like they never lubed it.
It was either in an earlier thread or in the owners manual when I first learned it telescopes.

My factory stereo apparently has an auto volume reducing function....when it thinks I've had too much volume for too long, it automatically lowers it....anyone else have this...?

I think it goes up and down with speed or something. Maybe can be turned off.

Is that really a step built into the bottom of the front bumper?
