There does seem to be a perspective issue on this forum.

The same argument could be said about any computer controlled system. If the computer crashes, if the engine can't be turned off, if if if.

This problem with ASS and keyless start needs fixing, and I can see there's a risk of the car restarting after being parked in a garage with tragic consequences, but there are "inherent" risks with all technology. Those risks shouldn't mean we should stop technological progress, they just mean we should demand that the technology is designed and built to mitigate or eliminate those risks.
