Are you kidding me? I'm not sure if I should take this seriously. There is no such thing as 3.

The Si model individualizes the front/rear brakes, like a motorcycle. The left one is rear brakes.

you might want to learn how to drive before you get in your brand new car. Please don't break it in before you know how to drive. The third pedal is the clutch pedal. You push this in when you start the car (please don't start the car!! You'll definately break it!) and when you shift to any gear and neutral. Ask your dad to show you how to shift and drive a manual car. And, there is no PRND321 because its a manual and you have to shift 1-2-3-4-5-R

When you get the car started let me know so I can make sure I get off of the road.

This has to be a stunt to increase his post count!

It's a break. A clutch keeps the wobulator in tact so that the differential doesn't wobulate out of control. Unfortunately it's only for Ferrari's and Aston Martin's. They're too expensive to put on Honda's. To keep your car from wobbulating though, just keep your wiper fluid topped off.

It is the FLUX Capacitor, don't touch it or you will end up in the future.

Also if you just bought that car you might wanna check the blinker fluid, you are supposed to change it approx. every 40k blinks, if not it causes alot of resistance which may result in an electrical fire.

This seriously has to be a joke. Its the clutch. If you can't drive a manual, give the keys up to somebody who can.
