    I had one of those keyless things on a rental car once. I found it as bit disconcerting at first, but after a couple of days I appreciated the convenience of not having to fish around for keys all the time. My only concern is somebody being able to drive off in the car without the key.

    My Mazda 3 has this system. I cannot tell you what a God send it is when you’re carrying an 11 month old boy, changing bags etc etc.

    I don’t need to worry about the key leaving the car as the minute it leaves the car, the car itself beeps and a message appears to let you know.

    However, if the batteries happen to fail in the fob it’s a bit of a pain in the rear. :)

    The keyless-go system is great :-) but don’t accidently leave your key in the car (e.g. in a bag or a jacket)… Then anyone can open the doors and drive away…
    I checked out the following on my 2007 BMW: When the key is inside the car, the door refuses to lock. So fortunately, I will get a hint when trying to leave the keys in my car.
