    i watched this youtube video. somehow, he makes sense. I mean why reinvent the wheel tapos pag nag-malfunction could cost you pHp 25K++. pano pag nag-malfunction while you're in a far away place like sa isang resto stop sa Sagada?

    this Push Start System is both electronic and wireless. Wifi ka nga sa bahay nag-malfunction ito pa kaya. though it's RFID, it's still an electronic circuit.

    Hated that guy. He's loud and his editing skills leaves a lot to be desired.

    Anyway, about keyless ignitions/push-button ignition.... I can mention a few things off the top of my head:

    1. They're for convenience. The same reason why they "re-invented" the manual transmission and made an A/T. Though it does cost more to make and even more to repair, but that's the price of convenience, or more accurately, how much you will have to pay for the convenience.
    2. They have gotten pretty good at making them pretty reliable. My parents have a 6-7 year old daily-driven Tucson and the push-button start have NOT failed us one single time.
    3. Even physical key ignition switches fail too. Remember the GM fiasco? That was worse, with around 120-something fatalities due to a faulty ignition key switch. Millions of cars worldwide were recalled. No such scandal with push-button ignition.

    It's for convenience. I don't have to look for my keys anymore, it's always in my bag.

    Yup..how many times I have dropped my keys in the past and damaging the fob in the process. For women, no more panic searching inside the bag.

    They can provide keyless start/stop but there should be some kind of manual override

    Warning: Thieves are using this mystery device to steal cars | Clark Howard

    and if i'm a thief, if i know your car has push button start/stop, i'll just wait for you to come near so i can open the passenger door and run away with whatever i can grab.

    Keyfobs for push-button cars usually have a back-up key to unlock the door, and a passive RFID chip that allows you to start the car by holding the keyfob close to the ignition button.

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...
