The "security" package on this is a real expensive piece of crap.
Try parking for 3 weeks at airport parking - then find you cannot get into the car- you need a tow truck to get to a dealer- the dealer takes FIVE WEEKS to get a specialist out to "fix" it (all covered by the first years sales contract but what you NEED is transportation - not a van parked at the dealers!!)
Best try to buy one without this piece of very poorly designed "safety ' feature!!
