Old is New Again - Push Button Starts for Cars Ignitions

    The very first cars operated with a push button start and my rental car had no keys - just a push button  for the ignition.

    What are your thoughts on eliminating keys and going completely with a push button? Have you tried it? Do you like it?

    I could go for that, because you would never lock your keys up in the car which is a constant worry to me, having done it a time or two. The key would not be in an ignition so should never accidentally be left in a car.

    How would you protect against theft?

    I must admit I like the idea of the cars that open/start as long as you have the key on your person, or ones that recognize you.

    It felt odd at first lol reminded me of 'Lost in Space' where he says, 'and the monkey pushes the button' lol idk where that came from tongue lol but once you get used to it smile it doesn't feel so strange. Just have to ensure you have the 'REMOTE' lock button thingy on you at all times wink
