18: Push-Button Starter
The way the automotive industry has advanced has been quite an amazing journey. Early adaptions of the push-button starter were frugal at best. The technology just hadn’t come far enough to make it work. Because cars were carbureted and had to be cranked, this technology just didn’t work well enough. Nevertheless, automakers continued to advance and evolve as time went on.
Nowadays push-button starting is the only way to go, and very seldom do you still find a key needed. The modern push-button starters that you’ll find are much more advanced than the first generation. This technology is now the norm and now you don’t have to worry about a lost pair of keys or a broken ignition.
