Itís probably for security reasons as said previously. Another far-fetched example is you and your friends arrive at a restaurant in separate cars. You get there first, get out of and lock your car. Your friends pull in and park in another aisle so you walk over to talk to them. Then you all head into the restaurant and you end up walking past your car again. You donít want your car to unlock by itself.

Other cars will unlock the door if you just put your hand around the handle, eliminating the need to push a button. The car probably only detects the key at a very short range so that you have to be right next to the car for it to unlock.

Weíve disabled the mirror folding action. Thatís just another moving part that can malfunction over time. We donít have to worry about fitting into tight spots or park on narrow streets very often.
