Drove the new car for the first time

October 22nd, 2007 at 03:54 pm

I drove our new car for the first time today. It seems so different.
There is no keys. You just push a button to start the car and to shut off the car. You also push a button to open the doors.
When I first got in and pushed the button to start, nothing happened. But then the car "told" me to step on the brake. Then it started!
Well, I made it to the bank and back, safe and sound, thank goodness!
This car manuel told me to use premium gas only. In my red corvette, it says to use regular, but when I do, I hear a pinging noise. Guess I will use premium for both of the cars. The blue corvette (1978) requires premium and does the 1933 ford victoria.
The only vehicle that takes regular is my husband's work van.
Yes, you are reading right, 5 vehicles for 2 people!! Good thing dh has a very low maintenance type of wife!!
I turned in all of my change for the month and have $40 to add to the $20 challenge.
Prev. total $23,043.00
today 40.00
new total $23,083.00

    oooh! that sounds so sci-fi, no keys!!...that would be great for me, as I keep misplacing mine! (which is why we have about 3 copies of each set of keys! LOL!)

    BMWs have a push button start. It's what B. drives.

    That sounds like the Toyota Prius that I got today. It gets good gas mileage though.

    My BF in the 80s bought a pink 1960 cadillac which had a push button transmission, so a push button start isn't so farfetched. Big Grin
