I've been looking at newer Foci some of which, the Titanium models apparently, have keyless start but still have a lock barrel in the drivers door. Having done a web search on keyless entry/start systems I'm confused as to which of the systems are used on these models. Do the doors unlock automatically - the proximity system - or do you still press a button on the remote? Once the car is unlocked is the immobiliser automatically cancelled? Without an ignition switch is there no steering lock?
I have serious misgivings about buying a car with these systems so any advice that would boost my confidence (or otherwise) would be welcome.
