2010 Mitsubishi Outlander GT: Dawn Patrol
October 29, 2010
Why must manufacturers insist on key-less entry and ignition? Don't get me wrong I like convenience as much as the next person, but isn't a remote with a key good enough? The reason this bugs me so much is an integrated key/remote isn't waterproof. Not a big deal most of the time, but a pain when you're going surfing.
I tried to out whit our Mitsubishi Outlander GT by removing the safety key and locking the fob in the car, but the Outlander is too smart for that. In fact no matter how hard I tried I could not lock the fob in the car, if you try the Outlander beeps at you and unlocks the doors...all of them. I know they shouldn't make keys specifically for the few of us who surf, but how about a key fob that is deactivated when the safety key is removed?
