You still end up paying in the long run, you have excess, voluntary excess, and next years premium to look forward to as well. apart from various bits and pieces, you keep in the car you forgot to put on your claim form. The insurance company will always win in the end. Also what about car hire for the period after you find out that your new car will take six to nine months from order to delivery?
Reduce the risk by not having keyless entry.
I agree on the keyless. I have had it on my past three cars.
It's nice but I have gone for the key this time to help keep costs down.
I just wish they had put keyless start as standard instead as part of the package which again I had on my past three cars.
We even had it on our Renault scenic back in 2004!

I’m more than happy to use a key but my greatest issue with my new car is seeing where to put it, it’s impossible to see the ignition lock from the drivers seat especially when the wheel is straight. I’m looking for a reflective large polo shaped sticker to adhere to the lock in the hope it will help.
Anyone else have this problem, why isn’t there a light around it or signature lighting covering that area .

I'm really glad they didn't I absolutely hate keyless and if that was only available then I wouldn't be buying a T-Roc. Once the day comes that manufacturers make keyless burglar-proof then I'll consider it until then it's the worst possible feature on ANY car IMO and you are just asking to have your car stolen.

I just don't see the point in the keyless entry or ignition/start/stop feature, I would have what we have on the T-roc as it is thank you. As for finding the steering lock to put your key in, it did cause me some problems for a few days until I got used to the car having the key blade in a different way to my last car. But you get used to most things after a while, and I had my last car for just over seven years.

If you find that reflective polo ring please post the details, I’m sure people will be interested.
