:boxing Anybody experience a take over by Fob #2 when it's no where near the car? I had Fob #2 take over twice and pin me against the wheel until I could reach down to button #1. And I'm claustrophobic. Group hug here!:grouphug

Does the car name CHRISTINE sound familiar?

Yes, I have that occur about once every few months, and FOB 2 is kept in my safe!
I keep them set the same, so the seats and mirrors match. The first thing I notice, though is that the CD isn't playing where I left off! :nopity

The main thing I can tell you though is that Driver #2 is a dog!
The car feels very sluggish and unresponsive compared to Driver#1.
If you don't think the car actually "learns" the drivers characteristics like they claim, switch FOBs after a year of driving and feel the difference, it's amazing!

Yeh............that's a great idea, after all, my daughter has her own CTS. The little bit she drives dads car, she can change the settings by hand.


see..........I wouldn't have thought of that. A few heads are always better than one.
Thanks

Don't need to take it from her, just drive on it for a day.
Unless you drive like your daughter (no comments Mark)....you should be able to tell the difference!
