"remote keyless entry" is a SCAM. Beware of automakers making this claim!

No car owner has EVER been able to enter his car remotely. One can ONLY enter a car after WALKING UP TO IT FIRST.

Thank you.

I believe that the defendant is going to walk. Case dismissed on a technicality.

Adjourned.

I got the AFE readout to be 40.8 mpg on the way home from the gas station last night.. Just took some downhill coasting, coasting to lights without coming to a complete stop, and some lights miles apart. Then I got in to go to work this morning, hit traffic, and now I'm around 36... Still better than the 31.1 mpg max I ever got out of my Taurus. :)

You need the Star Trek esk transporters for that to be practical, but I really don't want to end up fused into a blob with what ever items I was carrying/ wearing the day that the system malfunctions.

Must be nice. April 27, currently 36 F, I'm watching flurries blow around the parking lot out of my office window. I'm not saying this place is Hell but you can definitely see it from here!

Today I Learned..

You can commit egregious parking violations with temporary tags (in Denver) and get away with it. I'm not sure why.. but there seems to be an inability to write tickets for temporary plates.

Of course, I would never exploit this fact, but.. yeah.
