Picked up a new motor recently?

There's nothing quite like the thrill of collecting your brand-new car. The scent of fresh upholstery, the latest tech at your fingertips it's all part of the excitement.

But with a new vehicle comes the challenge of configuring all its features, which can be a bit overwhelming.

A motoring expert now revealed three overlooked features that many new car owners might miss. TikTok sensation @master_driver666, who has an impressive 747,000 followers, took to her account to enlighten her audience.

In a 30-second video, she advised: "After buying a new car, these three places are not set. First, press the door lock button for five seconds, one-touch lock function can be activated."

She continued: "Second, press the glass lift switch for 5 seconds, you can activate the one-click window raising function.

"Third, put into reverse gear, turn the rearview mirror adjustment to R, adjust the rear view mirror, find the location of the rear tyre. This will activate the automatic flip-down function of the rear view mirror."

Since posting the clip, it racked up 1,400 likes and numerous shares. One impressed viewer responded: "Freaking awesome," while another noted: "If you buy a good enough car, you don't have to do any of that."

The same TikTok guru recently divulged another clever tip, revealing a hidden feature which helps open your boot. She demonstrated how to properly adjust the trunk so that it springs open automatically.

She explained: "Peel off this interior fabric, do you see it? This has a spring, the spring corresponds to three small holes. There is a first gear, second gear and third gear.

"Now this spring is mounted on the first gear, let's adjust it to third gear. Hold the spring in your hand, just pull it gently like this, pull it to third gear."

After completing that step, replace the fabric and do the same on the other side. She finished by saying: "Okay adjustment completed, now let's see the effect, it bounced on its own."
