Comfort Access: First Impression

CA is nice, but totally unnecessary. So, unless you have lots of extra money, I'd pass on this feature. It will be fun to use it going to the gym in the morning and just keeping the key in my gym bag, but I could live without it.

Also, remember, to use the system you have to actually touch the door handle.

Yes, I know, I can just use the key buttons normally, but, hey, that's the point. Why did I get CA? Oh, yeh, because it was a new toy to have.

So, people, get Sirius satellite for the same money CA costs. You'll enjoy it more.

If you don't have CA you have to put the key into the "ignition" slot and then press the start button. Saving that first step makes CA worth every penny.

haha, i find CA very convenient since digging through your purse is quite a hassle. Plus, I'm always carrying books and things.

The thing I like about it is not having to fish around in my pocket for my keys. When you're carrying a lot of stuff and when it's raining it makes it nice to just walk up to the car and grab the handle. It also makes sense with the new push button start. I do agree though, it's just a convenience thing and isn't required at all, but it sure is cool .

Comfort Access is GREAT.

I wish my house had it.

My $0.02. Comfort Access is definitely worth it.

Sorry Larry,

CA is worth every penny and then some. Just my .03 cents.

the trunk and starting the car make it worth it.... unlocking door is just an extra.

but i would get this option before many others like sun shade.
