This is our second Grand Cherokee to have this feature and love it! When driving my Nissan Frontier truck with keys, it feels like we are in a model "A".

Don't have push button start, I still use a key. But to your question, I don't care how it starts, just that it starts.

Happyherman, I think most of us would agree with you in saying " I don't care how it starts, just that it starts. "

No......but i had to do a modification to a '92 Passat as i for some reason was having trouble with the neutral switch (automatic tranny) These were made of plastic. So i rigged a push button start to by pass the switch. But i needed the key to turn the ignition switch on, then button start.

I know someone whose starter doesn't seem to work anymore due to a lockout, so it was hotwired to a push button to turn the starter motor on... No key required other than to unlock the steering wheel.

Does this count?

Don't have it.
Don't like it.
Used it many times on customer cars. More stuff to go wrong.
BMW and Mini have electric slide in key fob recepticles. Assinine frivolity at it's best.

I have an older $100k car, uses a key, works great, love it.
