I had Hyundai Sonata 2011 (2.4L) Automatic Transmission, Standard Trim. About three weeks ago I bought a used Ford Fusion 2014 (2.5L) Automatic Transmission, Standard Trim, 133,000 km (82642 mi) milage, after driving this car it turned out to be a decent upgrade to me, as road noise is minimum, road grip especially on turns is also impressive, does better on bumpy surface, Electric Power Steering is a charm and being a standard trim car is equipped with decent features.
However, (until now,) I’ve two concerns, First one is a minor, that the locks in this car are not open they’re sealed inside the door only a small LED light (at the outer corner of the door) indicates the lock status but just in case if there is any problem in central locks then how I would lock the door? So, to me, it is a thing of concern.
My second concern is, that the lid/cover of the fuel tank is accessible from the outside (without any button from inside) just push and it will open and then push it again and it will close. When I saw it first time, I felt like it is some kind of vulnerable that anyone can put anything in it just by opening it with a single push, then again my younger brother expressed the very same concerns upon seeing it the first time. But this thing alarmed me quite a bit when one week before my father saw it left opened outside our apartment and asked me the same question that how did it open, and my answer about its design alarmed him also, as the kids in our area are really unpredictable and annoying. After that day, only because of this I’m parking my car little away from my apartment. I’ve uploaded a video if anyone wants to see it.
So, is there any solution for this to keep it inaccessible from the outsiders? To me, the last refuge would be to install sort of that Mr. Bean’s car lock on the fuel tank lid. LOL
