"If you use the standard deduction the first year, you can switch to actual expenses. You have to be very careful because you can lose the ability to switch between standard and actual.
Per the IRS Publication 334"
Dont see where it says that above but I did find what its says this below.
"If you choose to use the standard mileage rate for a year, you cannot deduct your actual expenses for that year except for business-related parking fees and tolls."---> Agreed; you are correct.
PLease visit the IRS website here, Standard Mileage Rate on page #15; http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p463.pdf
