The yellow button serves a purpose, if you happen to not have a garrage and need lighting when you get home to get into your house. I think it is a European thing.I personally just used the little yellow button on my door lock remote out of curiousity and found that it activates small lights underneath the side mirrors. Will I ever use that feature outside of pure amusement? No.
Agreed. Our old S80 and our cooper all unlock the gas door when the doors are unlocked. Maybe Volvo needed to fill in a button on the console. It sucks having to put the key back in and push the button when you don't time it right pulling up to the pumps.I'm with rayman on this one. I wouldn't call this a "feature."
In what way? All it does for me is provide the additional exercise of walking back to the driver's seat again after I get to the pump and find the door still locked. I don't drive the car much and put gas in it even less often.Having a separate unlock button for the fuel door is a benefit, if you ask me...
I guess if I lived in a city where someone was likely to jump into my car while I was refueling it, I could see being able to unlocke the fuel door sepearate from the doors as being beneficial. Except I am pretty sure that when you lock the doors it locks the fuel door (I read the manual a while ago and forget the details). However if I lived in a place like that I would be moving and if I was passing through I would keep on going. Then again the keys to my car are usually on the floorboard or the ignition. Now that my children are getting older I am starting to separate the keys from the car.Having a separate unlock button for the fuel door is a benefit...
Actually I know that my car has been rifled through at least twice. I do not leave anything worth taking in my car. I used to own a convertible and left it unlocked not matter where I was. I much rather have a thief open the door than take a buck knife and cut the top. Same with hard tops, much rather have a thief go through the door than the window. As far as my house, I only lock the doors to make my wife feel comfortable at night. All locks do is keep honest people out. If someone wants into your house your door/ window will do little to stop them.Yes, I believe it does lock along with the doors.
Re: the separate button thing - let me illustrate it this way. Once your house is broken into, you won't ever leave the door unlocked, even in the sleepiest of hamlets.
