Both of my cars require a key to start.
Its just that neither requires me to remove the key from my pocket.
One doesn't even require the press of a button (botton?) on the dash, just put it in gear and go.

" I can't say that anymore since my wife just bought a brand new 2014 Honda Civic LX that has this feature on it ".....

I was totally wrong with that statement ..... my wife's new Honda Civic LX does not have this feature..

After picking up my wife's new Honda Civic LX yesterday I found out that this car doesn't have this push button start feature.......

You still have to use a key to start it.................

rkt wgn says "With all the ignition problems right now, I'm glad I have keyless .
Doors automatically unlock with fob in pocket by touching
Door handle, push start button on dash, and away you go.
When parking, push start button again, to turn off car, open the door , exit vehicle
Shut door, auto lock takes over. Just walk away, doors will lock.
If fob is left in car, it will not lock. Very good feature.
I think it is great. I have a ford escape that doesn't have keyless, and I hate the key switch control, and
So does my wife."

Now I know what is like owning a vehicle that has push this option on it...

Thanks rkt wgn for your comment............

Awing1 says " No, I don't like it. heard of many troubles from it.
Don't rely on too much technology or automation. It can be screwed anytime and more importantly without a clue. "

Awing1 you are the first to mention any problem with the new option...

Awing1 maybe you can let us know what problems there are with this option..

My car does but this rental I have doesn't, and I really miss that feature, especially since the key for the rental goes into a really low, really hard to see spot, and I have to kind of feel for it to get it right. I guess I'd get used to it after a while, but I'm ready to have my car back!
