Make certain that the garage opener is in "learn mode". Also, because it's a cycling code, once it has been synced you may have to press the button in your car several times.

I can't speak for Miami, but radar detectors are pretty much useless in high volume traffic areas like Los Angeles. Enjoy your car.

It's just that time of year and the sun is closer. Use the shade, turn on the AC, and vent the roof to allow an escape for the hot air. This technique works for me...I close the shade 95%.

Dealers generally provide greater discounts on inventory on-hand this time of year on account of needs to clear in advance of arrival of 2017 cars.
