    Default Ignition lock to protect from self/ignition when car is already running :(

    Hey guys,

    I got a city aspire 1.5 last month. Loving the ride.

    One thing its missing is a darn 500rs feature to ignore ignition attempts if the car is already running.

    The engine is so quiet, its hard to tell in rush areas (yes yes I know the dashboard has a light for engine running) but I've missed it a few times (2,3 times total) and activated ignition/self while the car was already running. You hear that screech sound and immediately let go of the key but stil....

    This of course is not good for the transmission / car in the long term.

    I read on the internet, darn cars from 2001 has this feature abroad but this is missing from a 2 million rs car. just pathetic.

    Is there any after market solution for this?

    being the lost minded / lazy person I am, is one of the reason I went for an Automatic Transmission where the automatic feature alone costs over 1.4 lac rupees, I'm amazed how Honda Atlas couldn't put in a $5 chip for this additional feature.

    We're all above making our lives easier, like how the car cabin light turns on if you open the door, or how the car auto locks if unlock it but don't open the door in 30 seconds etc .... badly need this feature

    I'm planning on calling and sugesting/complaining about this to Honda Atlas but not sure if it'll change anything in a future car.

    Thoughts and suggestions please.

    Thanks
