Default Tip Start - starting procedure on new Chrysler/Dodge/Jeeps

I was just reading up on the 07 Grand Cherokee, 07 Commander, 07 Dakota, Dodge Nitro, and virtually every other Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep vehicle:

They have this feature called "Tip Start." Its like on newer GM cars, some Toyotas, etc, where you just turn the key to start and immediately release, and the car does the cranking/firing automatically....No need to hold it in Start.

I read it was an addition with the CANbus computer system.

Why didn't the Liberty get this until 2008? With the programming for the electronic throttle control, you'd think Tip Start woulda been included too...as every other Jeep now made has it.

Just a curiousity. Or does the 07 actually have it? I never did try this on mine...

Also, what do you guys think of this idea? Like it? Dislike it? Would you ignore it?

I actually really like this feature. My buddy's 04 Silverado has it, and it's really nice to be able to just turn the key and let go.

Me too...my Boss's Toy Sequoia has it too. Hence me being a bit "irked" reading the KJ doesn't get it, but the KK does.

KJ still has the old PCI system. It won't work. KK has the CAN bus system. It will work.

Ohhh. I thought the Liberty had the CAN system. Musta confused it whilst reading about my parent's GC.

I was just about to say that. Liberty never changed over to CANBUS like the Grand Cherokee, new lines, and the LX platform. However, I have a CANBUS vehicle and it does not have TIP Start. The LXs, however, also have the older generation CANBUS (slower speed) that does not get changed over until the 08 models. Also means they are getting MyGIG

Ahh, I personally like the good old hold the key to start trick.

All of these electronics is getting kinda stupid.

Who is to lazy to hold the key anyway? Only in America I guess.

remember the old days (b4 fuel injection) when you had to even "pump the peddal" to give it gas to start it? Gee we are spoiled arent we?

Might as well just go the whole nine yards and go with "keyless" starting where you just push a button and the car fires up.
