Panic!

June 25th, 2008

I don’t know who designed the key for our Ford Escape but I’d love to have a word with them: the buttons are far too sensitive. Today, while I was pulling my car into the garage I must have accidentally hit the Escape’s panic button because it started honking like crazy, scaring the crap out of me. Then later when Joe was backing out of the garage (in my car), the same thing happened.

We’ve also both accidentally popped open the hatchback without knowing it until later and you have to hit the button twice in a row quickly for it to even work! Considering that in the 8 years I’ve owned my Jetta, we have never accidentally set off the panic button, it’s obvious there is a design issue here. I’m removing the key off my keychain because that is just too annoying. I don’t even drive the Escape! (Although I am “allowed”).
