icon/user/avatar/20 Created with Sketch. By Viktor Kalutsky

Push Button start: “Started off as a feature only offer for the rich in more luxury cars which is a button that start the car after it detects that the key is inside the vehicle then when pressing the button the vehicle gets turned on, it’s a really cool feature because it only allows the car to be started with one key fob and you have to be in park with foot set on a brake.”


Push Button Start Pros

  • The key can be in your pocket and you can start the vehicle without having the need to pull it out.

  • Most push-button starts to come with remote which means you can conveniently warm up your car on a cold winter day

  • It will detect when the key is inside the car which means you can't lock yourself out.

Push Button Start Cons

  • If the key is lost its expensive to fix sometimes up to $1,000

  • If you don't press the button to turn off the car you can accidentally leave it running

  • The battery on the fob can die which will make it difficult to get moving with the car


Now you know some advantages and disadvantages of owning a car with a push-button start. Here at Bcr Automotive, we have vehicles that come with and without push-button start.
