  • The PC version of Cars: The Video Game is the only installment where cheat codes can be typed in using the keyboard. On the other games, you have to scroll through letters and numbers by clicking, which can be very stressful if the game tends to crash a lot.
  • In some versions of Cars: The Video Game (confirmed not on PS2 and Wii), and all versions of Cars: Mater-National Championship, and Cars: Race-O-Rama, cheat codes remain permanent (except for VROOOOM, IMSPEED, ZZOOOOM, 0TO200X, IF900HP, VRYFAST, and 2FAST).
  • Entering VROOOOM in the first game instantly gives the player 3 boost segments, no matter how many they had at the time.
  • The code "MATTEL07" in Mater-National is a reference to both Mattel, who runs the Disney/Pixar Cars Diecast Line, and the year the game was released.
