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!

I think that the new ignition systems without a key, will do away with the antique key models.
I have two cars with keyless, and both my wife and I love them. Then I also have an escape with a key. Both of us hate it. The keyless system works so much easier, and I don't think there will be as many problems with keyless.
