I think everybody receives some sort of promotional advertising from the auto dealers in January, don't we? The mailers with the large thick envelopes that have a key in them are the best. The envelope holds the typical advertising fliers, location, all that great information and a key to a brand new car. You know the rest . . . If the key starts the car, the car is yours, plus whatever is in the fine print! I've never bothered to follow through on even the reading of all the qualifications, much less actually go to the dealership and try it. We got two, I believe in the past week or so, and it got me thinking. We bought a new vehicle last year, well, a program vehicle or whatever they are with a few miles on them. Anyway, when the special ad with keys arrived this year, something dawned upon me. Ignition keys are not flat, they have chips or something. The entire top of the key for our new vehicle has or is some sort of electronic device or receiver. Our 15 year old car that we traded in last year had a chip. How many years has it been since you could start a car without a little chip in the key? I have never seen those high dollar electronic keys in the envelopes of the promos. Wow! Do you think the dealerships are just sending those out to get us on the lot to get "new car fever" and fill out a loan application? Do you think?
