Hm let's see what can we come up with in 2 minutes on google...My point, was that Opel/Vauxhall is the only manufacturer who doesnt have sensor unlocking.
So if you're saying you can open boot without unlocking car via remote on astra without keyless entry, that sounds like some serious security issue...Boot operates completely the same in both versions, thus its just a waste of cash
Allright, so what's your definition of "real" keyless system? Because I can unlock, start and lock my car without touching my remote key, so that kinda sounds keyless to me.Which is kind of archaic interpretation of keyless system thus its not the "real" keyless system
You can add rear armrest in Astra. But don't know what do you mean by "flexible floor"?daddydoug said:Kristis. Opel/Vauxhall are certainly not the only manufacturer whereby you have to push a button on the handle to unlock/lock the door. I have also been looking at the Mazda 3 and Nissan Qashqai and they both use the same method to unlock/lock the car.
After a long dedication to Vauxhalls, one Zafira and four Astra's I have decided upon the Qashqai though as it is best of the bunch for me. I feel the Astra has taken a few backward leaps, the biggest to me is the flexible floor which my current Astra J has, and also no rear armrest (my daughter threw a wobbly over that one).
In the Astra J, there is this clever invention in the boot that Vauxhall (Opel) branded the flexible floor. Basically it was a solid floor in the boot that you could raise or lower a bit to increase or decrease the storage area below. It meant it was easier to stack things in the boot as you effectively had a shelf below which you could store things.drcl said:But don't know what do you mean by "flexible floor"?
You mean as an option? Not in the UK unfortunately.drcl said:You can add rear armrest in Astra
So Opel is not the only manufacturer with archaic system... Who could have known But as for Hyundai, I have bough few Tucsons for managers and both have normal sensor unlocking and button is used only for locking. I'm guessing the system shown in the video is applicable only for USDM vehicles. Same goes for Nissan, sister drives a Leaf and it also has normal proximity sensor unlock and button is used just for lockingmorgoth said:Oh god, where to start...

Why is that a security issue? All u need to do is to have the key in your pocket. It does not open doors nor unlock them. "Keyless" and regular system operate the boot completely the same. Press the button - boot unlocks and opens, doors stay locked, no need to touch your remote in either of the system. Havent seen any new car for a while which would operate the boot differentlySo if you're saying you can open boot without unlocking car via remote on astra without keyless entry, that sounds like some serious security issue...
Real keyless is sensor based system - pull the handle and it unlocks automaticly, and when its time to get out - u just go - locks automatically without any touching (Opel has this part btw). Same system as found in any manufacturer And yes, my point was that there's completely no use in paying 1500eur extra for such iteration of keyless system, rather spend them on LED headlights or leather interiorAllright, so what's your definition of "real" keyless system? Because I can unlock, start and lock my car without touching my remote key, so that kinda sounds keyless to me.
Seriously though, if you claim that Opel's keyless entry is useless and waste of money, because you need to press button on door handle (which is usually already placed under your thumb when you are opening doors) instead of not pressing button, then I can only suggest to others not to take your posts seriously.
Wow, a button to press to unlock the doors.... that makes the Hyundai Tucson another car with a keyless system that isn't real!!!!SwissTJ said:Kristis - from the 2016 Hyundai Tucson quick reference guide... a button that you need to press to unlock the door(s)
