The actual problem is that the car will continuouslylock the doors, flash lights, and beep horn as long as I am within 20-30 feet from it with the keyfob on my person. I can leavethe fobin the house, wrap it in tin foil, as long as it is not on my person. It's an embarrasment when I go in to a store, or anywhere else for that matter, and people will wonder what's with that car ? This was reported to the dealer, before I took it to them, and that is when I found out about the recall, as well as one on each of the driver and passenger airbags. The service manager said the matter was resolved, but, it was not resolved. A month later, I contacted him, personally, to tell him that the problem was not fixed, that's when he got kinda snotty and wanted to throw a "diagnostic fee" at me.
I am in my late 60s, and can remember actually having to check tire pressure, lock and unlock doors, turn off the lights, and only use the horn to share my discontent with other drivers. If I could find a car that was actually user friendly... get your hands dirty and fix it yourself... I would gladly give up this "smart" car. Thanks for your response 6248.
