I don't need a fancy ecu that is hackable. All I need is a screw driver and a timing light

You didn't even need that back in the day. All you needed was a coat to protect your elbow as you put it through the window and a strong arm to rip out the ignition barrel.

On my Mazda 3 (05') there was apparently a location on the passenger side door were if you kicked it, it would unlock all of the doors!

Regardless of these flaws, cars are safer these days whether we like the technology or not.

I think he's saying he wants a simple car that he can work on himself I don't think he's talking about stealing one... I never heard of someone stealing a car with a timing light but I never did try to steal one so maybe socom can fill us in on what he meant...

And I kinda disagree with socom, gotta have fuel injected. I hate working on carbs what a pita.

I know that some of the earlier models with this feature are vulnerable to brute force casting of the signal, meaning someone just has to sit down with a phone/laptop sending random signals until one matches and boom.

Electricity? What a bunch of witch craft. I'll stick to my candles and fireplace for heat and light. Just think about how dangerous it is! The old ways are safer.

Did you guys here that they have this new technology called an "automobile!" It's like a train without rails! Ha! That will never catch on, just think of how many people will get into accidents or have them stolen.

Computers? The world will only ever need like 5 of those and there is no way that will catch on. People can just steal all of your data, especially through the internet! That is just a ridiculously useless idea, I'm going to stick to looking up information in the library and keep all my important stuff on paper.

Computers inside of cars? This is just crazy. Now people can do things I don't understand to steal my car instead of just breaking the window or taking my keys. I'm never going to buy a car with a computer so I get left behind and people have to steal the way people have always been doing it! There are WAY more people who understand how to hack a car then people with a baseball bat or a screw driver anyway.

Meanwhile, the world moved on with little problems and the old people stayed locked in an ignorant bubble of false security and fear of new things.

It's obvious he just bought a car with this tech and thought it was the coolest thing ever, showing his friends, neighbors, and even random people in the parking lot. Now he's finding out it's hackable he is regretting his purchase and is now overly paranoid about his new vehicles safety.

You guys should check out some of the posters that you think are joking. A majority of them were fear-mongering in multiple technology threads around here.

As for my car, I would kill to have something with this technology. The door locks in my '93 Altima don't even work at all and haven't for at least 4 years now. This is a calculated risk I am willing to take.

(but really if they are trolling, they got me, I raged)
