I don't think anyone but them & Kia do it. I've used & had it on a few cars & never did that & cars always stay locked till you unlock em & if no one enters, it's on a timer to shut the car off in 15 minutes so anti-theft wouldn't be legit reason IMO

Agree. I thought the Germans have been at it for at least a decade. Maybe not as efficient but same process

Automotive exterior “Class A surface” paint is not powder, it is liquid.

Good move by Toyota to improve operational effectiveness. The actions are not new or novel.
Agree. I just saw this post and was going to post almost the same thing.
