the Subaru crosstrek is fairly conventional...
the mini is a pushbutton but you need a key-like thing to activate, black disc about the size of a pregnant 50-cent piece, I'm forever losing it because it doesn't feel like a key...

lilmx5guy says " Have it in my newest car (only way it came). Wife loves it. Has remote start from the factory, and has to be locked by remote BEFORE you could start it, making it safer than if a key was in it. If your car was running and unlocked for some reason, it won't let you put it in drive without the "key" being with you. "

Thanks lilmx5guy, now I know how it works.............

I wonder if the vehicle can be locked while you are warming up the vehicle in the cold weather...

I saw on the news someone stealing vehicles while being warmed up in the cold weather....

Maybe someone who has a vehicle with this feature can let me know...

Just wondering............enquiring minds want to know...........
