True scenario: Yesterday a female driver parked her car next to me. She drove a 1990-something Mercury Grand Marquis and I have a 2005 Toyota Matrix XR. I don't know this stranger. She went for a run while I went to my tennis practice. When I return from practice, the girl was standing between our cars, looking a little nervous. I get the vibes she either in trouble or looking for trouble so I was cautious. I have remote keyless entry but decided to use my key instead. As I opened my door, she came around the car near me and asked "What would you do if you lock yourself out of your car?" By that question I knew she did it herself! LOL! A nice person she is and pretty desperate I offer to stay and give her some help and security. The place is at a public park and as night fall it gets pretty dark. She recently had the keyless entry feature installed in her car. She took the remote with her and left her Iphone and the car key in the car while jogging. I don't know how or where she kept the remote on her but mysteriously she lost it during her run. And worst, she a foreigner, has no family or friend, and her significant other is physically in another state. I offered her a ride home to get the spare key but still her house key is in the car. GREAT! And no sense wasting time trying to find her lost remote because it was too dark to see and the route she ran was too far. Luckily, I have membership with AAA roadside assistance (whew!) I did a phone call, waited for the AAA truck to arrive (45 mins.) and then came the slim jim! It saved the girl's night and her car could go home. While driving home in my car I thought about what if that girl's car is my car (the matrix), would a slim jim still work at all? Would it work on newer model cars?
