Brainless Entry

Fancy automotive baubles for the easily amused.

Many of you (ahem, all THREE of you, that is - ) who have been following my work for a while probably remember my rant on "brake-by-wire" technology called "Smart Brakes - A Dumb Idea?" and how I referred to this new trend as "automotive innovation for the thinking impaired." The bad news is that I've zeroed in on yet another branch of this type of technology that I shall call "fancy automotive baubles for the easily amused."

The inspiration for this latest rant came to me while I was driving home from work in my 1997 Honda Passport that was at the time of this writing, two payments away from being all mine. The Honda has served me faithfully, and has never once left me or my wife stranded by the roadside in the six and a half years we've owned it. However, several minor yet irritating things have gone wrong with it over the years. For instance, none of the power windows work any more, and it blows headlights at an alarming rate. I also didn't opt for the CD player or any other little comforts… it's an SUV that's all utility and no sport. But, as I said before, it's almost paid for, so we can live with these minuscule problems.

Anyway, here I was tooling along listening to the radio in my six year-old, all utility-no sport, almost-paid-for, headlight-blowing, broken power window Passport and an Infiniti commercial comes on. (I usually ignore these commercials because I believe Japanese luxury cars to be the most mundane, boring and soul-less vehicles on the planet. Not to say that they aren't good cars, it's just that these cars are more about fluffery and prestige than they are about owning a finely built, ultra-reliable car.) The radio spot was touting Infiniti's new keyless entry feature that unlocks your car without even having to press the key fob or even put the actual key in the door. That's right… just leave the key in your pocket and the car will unlock itself. Wow! But wait, there's more! You don't even have to put the key in the ignition to start the car! That's right again… just leave the key in the pocket of your L.L Beans. God forbid that Japanese luxury car owners should actually be required to handle keys just because they want to get in the car and go somewhere. The very nerve! And I was complaining about not being able to roll down my windows or listen to a CD… I'm so self-centered. To think that they are still some luxury car owners out there who have to start their cars all by themselves. I'm such a selfish bastard.

I ask you, fair reader… what kind of inanity is this? What exactly is the point? And where will it all end? It is doubtless that luxury car manufactures will halt their pursuit of such fluffery, so how long will it be before they come up with a car that reads your thoughts or just drives the damn car for you? This, however, could be an improvement considering the growing use of cell phones, PDAs and laptops being used by the typical drivers of Japanese luxury imports.

I can't really blame the Japanese manufacturers for doing what they're doing. After all, it was Cadillac that really pioneered such useless luxuries. The first one I remember seeing was in the 80s when Caddies came with this nifty little device that turned off your headlights if you accidentally left them on. A useful feature if you're stupid enough to walk off and leave your lights on in the first place, but the end result was that Cadillac drivers just got out of their cars and left their lights burning on purpose and smugly walked away knowing that Caddy drivers don't have to turn their lights off themselves. If some helpful Samaritan pointed out to the Caddy driver that their lights were on, they could turn around and say "They go off by themselves… it's a Cadillac…they're automatic." in a jaunty, condescending tone. Which of course left the helpful Samaritan wanting to go turn off their lights for them… with a baseball bat.

Another Caddy feature that came to prominence about this time was the self-closing trunk, which would have been useful back when Cadillacs were the size of aircraft carriers and had deck lids that weighed more than most Japanese imports, but was completely useless for the more modern Caddies with their Tupperware-like trunks. I remember working as a carry-out boy at a local retail store where I had to tote purchases out to the cars of grouchy, ungrateful customers, many of whom drove Cadillacs. (Incidentally, these same people were also lousy tippers.) Many of them yelled at me when I attempted to "slam" their trunks after loading their purchases. What else was I supposed to do? Trunk slamming was an ancient motoring tradition - I didn't know any different. I soon adapted myself (grudgingly so, I might add) to gently close Caddy trunks and listen for the "whir and click" noise that indicated that the deck lid was closed.

It was also Cadillac that had some of the first OnStar systems. OnStar is a good idea when it comes to useful things like notifying authorities in case of an accident or locating a stolen vehicle, but it was soon adapted to other silly uses. Finding a good Tai restaurant, making hotel reservations, or getting directions to the closest dry cleaner were soon things of the past for OnStar users. Seems like getting a map and phone book, while not being easier that using OnStar, wouldn't cost the user 69.95 a month. OnStar can even remotely unlock your doors if you lock your keys in. All it takes is a phone call.

My father taught me that you kept a spare key in your wallet in case you got locked out. Which, according to him, was the ultimate in stupidity, because only a real dipstick would get out of the car without first removing the keys from the ignition. Of course, this is the same man who often ran out of gas while taking one of his famous shortcuts which usually involved driving through ultra-seedy parts of town. But that, as he would say, is off the point. Maybe if he had had OnStar, he could've found a short cut or two that didn't involve motoring through a demilitarized zone. Yeah, that's a good one… my dad buying a car with OnStar. God help the salesperson that pitched it to him:


Salesperson: Mr. Wingate, let me tell you about the OnStar system. It can…

My Dad: Is it free?

Salesperson: Well… no, but…

My Dad: Then I don't want it.

Salesperson: Well, but let me tell you about…

My Dad: Okay, gimmie my check back. And point me to the nearest Ford dealership. You haven't sold my old car yet, have you?


If every car buyer was like my dad, the useless automotive bauble industry would be in shambles. Nobody would want OnStar, keyless entry, heated seats, self-closing trunks, idiot-proof headlights, DVD players, GPS systems, satellite radio, game consoles, cappuccino makers, built-in marital aids, roof-mounted laser-guided anti-tailgater missiles, or any other kind of fluffery. Well, some car buyers might want just a few baubles… like a CD player…

… or some of them fancy windows that actually roll up and down.
