Approaching the car, and using the key fob thing a click to open the door locks will also tell the photogenic thingiee that it is DARK outside and turn on the headlights & taillamps to illuminate your way. It will also start the car and if I park & set the heater & seat warmers, in advance, I will enter a warmed up car, and have a warmed seat. It will also check the doors & make sure that they are locked. When i enter (and it's running) I have to insert the key into the ignition before I do anything. If i do not do that, the first time I step on the brake oedal - - the car will stall and not re-start until I insert the key.
This to keep anyone from breaking the glass to get into the running car & steal it. As soon as they push the brake pedal, she dies and will not restart.
If I puther in the garage, I must bring the clicker to open/close the garage door with me into the house, asI must use it to open the garage door, BEFORE remote starting the car. Can't run a car in a closed garage, ya know.
It all sounds technical. But I beat you on one thing I donīt need to take my key out of my pocket. I only opend the door, and push the startbutton. When I leave the car, I only put my finger on any of the 4 door-handle, and it closes everything. Very handy.

'Ya, I sae that on the 2009 Lincoln MK-S. That has it. What car do you have ? Volvo? I love the S80 Premier Elite. Neat car. In America it's sorely overlooked. I'd buy it !!! But my peers only want BMW AUDI or M-Benz.
I would buy Volvo / Saab 9.5 Aero before audi, MB or BMW/

I do not like being a sheep

I too.

I drive brand new cars as part of my job - and I wouldn't spend the money buying one (should I HAVE the $$$!!), I'd rather put it into by T-bird, my hot-rod or my motorbike.

Too many people see a 'new car' as a status symbol and often buy them for the 'gimmicks' they have - often many said gimmicks are rarely if ever used.

S80 D5 ( Turbo diesel )"Summum".
Summum means maximum attack on options....
Like bending lights. Follows the steering wheel. Does Lincoln have that too?
But I have it as a companycar, and change every 2:nd year. Not sure what it will be this summer, when itīs time to change again.

I like thr 311 H.P. V-8 with the All Wheel Drive Premier Elite with model tons of toys! The 2008 out-does itself. Wool carpeting, with leather inserts in hard wear areas. If I only had $ 60.511.OO to drop on it ! That's the window sticker here in New York Area. Dealers are give off $3,000 from that price, but the added SALES TAX piles that $3,000 right back on. My NEAREST dealer is located in a very wealthy area, so....one would think he sell a good number of them, right? Nope! He sold 10 last year, less than 1 a month !! Buyers are dumb. It's a conservative car with good looks not offensive to anyone laden with the MOST toys I have ever seen on a car, if if if you order them all. (As I always do). But, you see the neighbors would not know what it is. only than it's NOT a BMW or a Benz, so.....it's a "cheap car" probably....
