Dizzying world of car technology

I was puttering in my garage the other day on a woodwork project. I live in a small (nine-unit) condo complex. Parked less than 40 feet away was my neighbor’s car. All of a sudden I heard it start up. I turned around to say “good morning,” but nobody was there. He came out of his house about 10 minutes later and said he just wanted to warm the car interior before he got in.
