I want to check the cabin air filter. The book says to open the clove box and remove the screw just above the cd player and pull the tray out. I was able to remove the screw alright but I can't seem to pull the tray out. I haven't pulled real hard for fear of breaking something. Is the tray hard to get out or am I missing something?

Re: cabin air filter?
I think all filters are under 4yr maintenance warranty. At certain mileage levels.

Ok, this is impressive.
I just drove across the country in my new car. There are many places along this drive in the more...shall we say, "bovine intensive" areas of the country along the route we take where our expectation has become one of personal torture due to having to endure many miles of the gut-wrenching, near-visible stench that comes off of the stock yards. I mean, this is stink you can actually taste even if you plug your nose it's so bad (this is *not* a joke). It's a stank that may be powerful enough to alter one's genetic make-up more effectively than many forms of radiation. The smell is so strong and nasty I thank heavens the Soviets didn't get a hold of it and harness it as a weapon during the Cold War or we'd all be speaking Russian...and not because we *had* to...because we'd *want* to over dealing with the rankness. If they used it at Guantanamo Bay, the U.N. Would declare us an olfactory threat to the world.
This is a bad smell.
So back to my point...we drove this route expecting the normal choking and gagging....and *saw* the cattle yards....noticed the wind was pointed our way....and only a *very* slight odor penetrated the car. I could not believe it...something had to be off, right? Cracked the window for a *fraction* of a second and the passengers erupted in a wave of complaining that lasted 1/3 of the way across Nebraska (for those who have driven across Nebraska, *that* is saying something).
This car keeps out exterior odors.
Amazing and well done.
I can only imagine that it must also be pretty tough on allergens, huh?
