I just read this thing on Mercola's website and found the following paragraph disturbing:
"This can save you a locksmith charge if you lock yourself out of your car. I just purchased a new car (as a result of my recent car accident) that has an absolutely amazing feature. If I ever lock myself out, all I have to do is call an 800 number and they will send a signal to the car that will automatically unlock it."
A few years ago I had a friend in Los Angeles who drove a brand new BMW X5 and I made a comment to the effect that it was a nice car. She responded with "no, it's horrible, I don't trust it, sometimes it just dies on the freeway... I've taken it in many times and they can't find anything wrong with it. It always starts again but it's awful when you're driving and it just goes out, even if it's only for a few seconds... They can't fix it and they won't replace the car."
I guess I can count my blessings that I'm driving an old banger
Change happens when we become aware of what we are already doing.
