Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Your Car (But Were Afraid To Ask)

It's happened to every driver, either early or embarrassingly late in life: You're driving down the road, something lights up on your dashboard ... and you have no idea what it means.

Is it something bad? Something good? Just a gentle reminder, or an urgent alarm?

It's hard to say, because until this moment, you've never actually given much thought to the cryptic symbols and buttons that populate your dashboard.

We're here to help. In partnership with the all-new 2014 Toyota Corolla, we've created a guide to everything you ever wanted to know about your car -- but were too afraid to ask. Have a safe and happy ride!
