At some point or another we’ve probably all felt a little reluctant to hand our car keys over to a valet driver upon arriving at a hotel, restaurant, or other venue. The idea of giving our keys to a complete stranger can be unnerving. Aside from the big fear that this person could just drive away in your car, there are the smaller worries to consider. Will the valet snoop through your car?
Today’s tech savvy vehicles are smarter and more advanced than ever before. Many come equipped with infotainment systems that store an abundance of personal information such as addresses and contacts. The 2014 Chevrolet Impala will feature the next-generation Chevrolet MyLink system that will offer a ‘valet mode’ with a PIN-activated faceplate to keep prying eyes away. The retractable faceplate will also double as a secure storage bin large enough to hold valuables like an MP3 player, phone, or wallet, giving driver’s peace of mind when someone unknown takes the wheel.
“Valet mode is the kind of feature that Impala customers will appreciate,” said Chris Perry, Chevrolet vice president of Global Marketing. “It is one of the many great new features on our newest MyLink and a small part of Impala’s overall technology package.”
The 2014 Impala will go into production this spring and will be offered for sale later this year. For more information on the entire Chevrolet lineup, visit our Ashland dealership in person or online at www.billharrisgm.com.
