Mr. Red, you hit the button, so to speak, on those keyless entry cars. My newest one has that, and I've realized that someone could just hang around and try to button until I get close enough that it will open and start. I'm looking through the manual to find the directions to set it so it doesn't use the on-demand opening, instead, I'll open it with the fob. Once in the car I can start it. The other thing I need to find out how to set (that I've set in my last three vehicles) is so it doesn't fling open the door locks the moment the engine is turned off. The owner's manual is 550 pages.
