What's that song from the Nissan Altima commercial?

The lyrics are "Here in my car...I feel safest of all...I can lock all my doors..." It's an 80s song...a really good one and I can't figure it out. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

You know, all these car commercials should start doing what they do on music videos and actually credit the song they are using in the lower left hand portion of the screen. Now I have this snippet of a song stuck in my head.

Please tell me no one had to actually go and look that up.

hey! as a future tool, you might just try typing the song lyrics into google with quotation marks around all consecutive phrases. it will usually pop up what you want in the top five hits.

Featuring Gary Numan lol. It sounds almost the same as the original to me.

yeah, but it jams a little more to me. I love both versions. I'm glad FF didn't try to change such an awesome song.
