You think they could at least put a non-functional key into the fob so it looks complete.

They should do what audi and mercedes did. Audi you can even charge the fob while driving in the port (you need it in your pocket or in the car to drive) and mercedes has no metal key at all, besides the hidden one not many people even know they have. Mercedes uses a sensor at the tip of the fob to tell the ignition it is the proper key and you turn it just like any other fob, and you're on your way.

Also, don't most chevy sedans now have the same exact key fob? Switch blade? I wonder when they will be recalled.

How long would cars be sitting on the lot and at the factory waiting for that complicated fix?

If I even decide to do anything about it, all I'm
Going to do since I used to work at my local dealer when I was in the trade and I know the tech that would be doing this repair, I'm just going to get him to cut me the key so I have a spare for my wallet no charge and leave my remote alone... Problem solved

Put a flip out flashlight in the fob. Or why not just leave the key and give you the extra. Or make it so it will only open the door.

The equinox they gave me to drive has the exact same switchblade key, but a wonky angled ignition switch.

You think they'd just put a nonfunctional key into the empty slot fill it in.

Or even better. An aftermarket company could make a key that fits in there that can start your car.

It would eliminate the need for a separatekey and fob.

Now that's innovative.

Wouldn't this new setup hang lower than the current one and in fact INCREASE the chances of hitting the key and yanking the position of the ignition?

This is a solution looking for a problem...

Since it's been decided it's a safety issue (no matter if you think it is or not) the company that makes it could also be held liable if there ever was an issue. I don't think anyone would want that responsibility.

Yea, Now let's start applying twisting force to the fob. Maybe good only for loose screws.

How about a nail file then? There seems to be other things it could be used for.

Hey that might work. Of course then some people might get mixed up and assume use while driving as it dangled from the new key.

Will we be penalized in any way if we opt out of having the recall done?
