    I do miss the power trunk pull down feature. The vacuum auto parking brake release was a neat feature, although I can't say that I used it much.

    key? I haven't used a key to open a drivers door since 1986. Remote keyless entry is a wonderful feature.

    I prefer the clean look of not having a keyhole. Do wish they had a remote gas door release and trunk pull-down. They still put it on Corvettes. I have locking gas caps on my vehicles. I realize a criminal with a purpose can do whatever they want. I mostly just have it to prevent juvenile tampering because some areas to which I travel kinda suck.

    Until it fails or the battery is dead. I also have not used a key to open a car door or trunk for longer than I can remember.

    Just a thought....
    I use my key every once in a while... just to keep the lock mechanism from corroding and seizing up and to make sure it still works JUST IN CASE I do need it.

    Great suggestion Jim – I will do that today. I am getting kind of lazy since retirement and had not thought of doing it.
