    It appears that unless I pull the key out of the ignition after turning the car off the ACC stays on (per the manual and my observation).

    Am I missing something? We never take the key out of our other vehicles in the garage (if they still have keys). Seems like a minor thing, but will take some getting used to (especially since it seems like the key is a little tough to remove).

    Thanks.

    Welcome new Roadster owners! The key has to be out of the ignition :)

    Pull it out then put it back in again.

    That is what I have been doing, but it seems like the key is difficult to remove. Is everyone's like that?

    My key can be a little stubborn at times, but a little wiggle and it pops outs. You'll get used to it.
