Just picked up a new 2017 Spark LS

7 posts in this topic

My new commuter car. Hilarious to have a car with a backup cam, wifi, and... oh yeah, roll-up windows and a power lock. But it's fun and it was only $11 grand, so rock on! Heck of an improvement over my old Hyundai Accent on my daily DC commute!

You have power door locks? My new LS 2017 is all manual door locks but the driver's door opens automatically when transmission is shifted to park! I have 240 miles on it now and car computer says my mpg is 33 (mostly city driving, and 50 miles highway. ) it is zippy and fun to drive and easy to park with the rear view camera, standard.

Oh no... I have the singular door lock. It's a feature I find utterly hilarious.

Welcome!

 

I was not aware of the single power lock "feature" on the base model - obviously one power lock assembly is cheaper to install than all four, but it does make you wonder why they bothered at all. It's certainly a conversation piece, though, as you're leaning across the car to let your bemused passenger in.

 

I can relate about the unexpected tech features on a car this small and inexpensive, though. Our '14 1LT also has the MyLink touchscreen radio, which always makes people ask if it has navigation. I would argue that it does - on the separate screen that is my phone, anyway.

Only ONE door has power lock...so that...OnStar can unlock your car if you locked yourself out? Ditto with the trunk lock. There is no inside release lever but OnStar can remotely unlock the trunk??
