I don't see the difference or why it matters if the car shuts off either way, Ford did something different, so it shuts off when you open the door instead of hitting the brake, I'd rather have that than the tease of sitting down getting all situated and then having to restart the car cause I hit the brake.

I get what you're saying, but I don't understand this thread, it seems like most of these guys didn't know the car was supposed to shut off, and if they do I don't see why they're upset that the car shut off a different way if it was going to shut off anyway.
you don't seem to understand:

How it should work:
Hit button on keyfob -> Car starts with doors locked
Someone approaches car w/out key -> doors locked, can't get in
they break window and attempt to drive away -> car sees no key and turns off
owner walks up with key -> doors unlock, car stays on
owner puts car into drive -> since key is there, car stays on and just starts to drive.

Now that you understand the most logical way it should work, you can understand why a person would be frustrated when it doesn't work that way.
