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.

Or how about a house key....no wait, that might get recalled as well.

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?

I dont think so.. But if you do hit your key by any chance while driving and crash.. it will be on you.

Hell or use it to clean their ears out and puncture their ear drums. I have heard that happening with regular keys...
