Like Jim said, the Driver Recognition stuff still has the normal key as a fall back.

And I felt the same way when I saw the commercial... "How freakin' lazy do you have to be...."

I personally never use my door key. Partly cuz I love the gadget factor, partially because I know I can never lock my keys in the car if I use the fob all the time....

(on either door.) I know our 95 SSE had it, and my Riv has it, and both of our 00'*.
my 93 does. Now the 97 i had, if you ude the key, it was like the keyless entry. If you twist to unlock the door once and let go, it only unlocks the driver side. If you twist and hold the key to the left after 2 seconds, all the doors unlock. Thats better than the 93. One touch, all doors unlock. I mean, what if you dont want no one else in the caar? Cant do that because all the doors unlocks.

My moms car does that too. Hold down the unlock and lock buttons or hold the key over 3 seconds and the windows on both sides go down. I wish they go up too.

I think that new technology is pretty clever and innovative. I like gadgets and electronic toys. When I bought the GTP, I finally got keyless entry. I never use my keys to open doors anymore. I love new technology.

Everyone loves technology. I love technology. I just don't like that we've built a culture upon our technology. It SHOULD be the other way around. Technology, as a whole, is a delicate house of cards as it is, and the sad circumstance of this is that if (when, in my opinion) this technology is suddenly and painfully ripped away from us, maybe for good, what then? Never build a life dependent on technology, because technology can be as harsh a curse as it can be virtuous a blessing. What we're talking about is one small, insignificant but symbolic example

Kyle is correct. I rely on technology on a daily basis, and without it, I would be screwed in quite a few areas. But, I would not want to have all this keyless BS, and then when it breaks [and it will], you are locked out of your car, and no way of getting back in. Let'* say this happens, and you lock your 6mo old in the car? Or your dog? What happens then? If it is true that it will still have a key, and can be used as a backup, then that may be a different story, but until I see that, I wouldn't use it. The furthest I will go, is a highend alarm, with keyless entry [duh]. Keyless entry has been around for so long [my car has it], it'* pretty much tried and true at this point. There isn't much to go wrong with your basic fob.. maybe with an advanced fob, but even then... not a lot of **** to mess up.

I'm not gonna get too deep in to the whole philosophy of technology. I just think it'* great what these car companies can come up with these days. It really shows what we as a society can accomplish and innovate. Change is inevitable, and it happens all the time. We shouldn't look back at the timeline and keep things the way they are. If so, we'd still have flathead V8'* that put out 50HP in our cars with no seatbelts.
