    Come back to your other car to find it locked and running? I'm out of town with a rental car and I've left it parked and running no less than 6 times now. Most recently I came out of a grocery store after 30 minutes and there's my Dodge Charger, locked and running in a parking spot, my brother laughing at my seeming incompetence. I'm so used to just parking and getting out that I keep just parking and getting out.

    The Model S has ruined the way I car.

    Had to reread this sentence several times before I realized "Charger" referred to your car model rather than a charger cable. Must be getting senile or else the anticipation of getting my Model 3 has my mind so attuned to EVs that it's coloring the way I interpret what I read. :p

    One convenience of the MS that gets me every time I drive my other cars is the ability to park, open the door, and MS automatically puts itself in Park without me touching the stalk. In my other cars, I stop, start to get out and then realize the car is moving and hit the breaks and put it in Park manually.

    Have not done that (yet) but along those lines I took someone for a test drive yesterday and when we finished the guy made a motion with his hand like reaching for a key and then asked me how to turn off the car. :)

    Yep, this is why I don't drive ICE anymore when I travel, I only rideshare as I'm quite simply not competent to operate outdated hardware ;)

    At least you remember to lock your car...otherwise you'd come back to find no car at all!
