Keyless Car Leaves Drive Feeling Adrift - Columbus Dispatch April 30, 2016

I recently rented a car for a business trip to West Virginia.
After filling out the paperwork, I walked around the vehicle with the agent to inspect it for damage. Finding none, I began to reach for “the keys.”
The agent asked whether I had driven a car with a keyless ignition. I said no.
He explained that the car didn’t have a key. To start the car, he said, I just needed to have the fob inside the car and push the start/stop button; to turn it off, I had to push the button again.
What could be easier?
I hopped in and got on my way. Three hours later, I arrived in Charleston without any problems.
