Car trouble: Keyless and lockless is no match for brainless

Oh yes

Me at Venice Treviso airport with new rental, can't remember make or model. We have baggage, need to open the boot, no keyhole, no boot release switch in the cabin ??? Our car nut fellow traveller came over from their rental and tells me to press the lock button on the fob twice, which of course works. But how was I to know?

My wife's 2-door 02 Civic has no keyhole in the passenger door, so to access something on the passenger seat in the locked car requires you to walk to the rear or the driver's door. Bought second hand, no automatic lock fob. Honda want too much for a replacement so we have never bothered.

I'm coming to the conclusion the car companies WANT their cars to be stolen and wrecked/burnt out because it mandates sales.
