Angry Anybody Else have this happen? (keys)

When I got my 2014 2LT (brand new) it came with a Regular key and then a switch blade key with my buttons and remote start, except the switchblade had no key in it, so I have two parts on my key chain. Is this normal or did I get screwed out of the cool switchblade key? Sorry if this question is stupid I just never thought about it until now.

The cost is close to nothing:

Cheap-ass GM.

I can't believe they don't supply a new remote fob as well, like the one that comes with the trucks.

The one that comes with the trucks looks like it was made by Fisher Price. The remote for my 2001 Suburban and 2002 Tahoe look better.

But then again, this whole key fob recall and its "fix" is a gigantic joke.

At least it doesn't look like it's missing something out of the side of it.

It would be great if GM would follow Audi and just use RFID proximity keys on their next round of performance cars.

My 05 vette had proximity key fobs. Way better than the cheesy key I have for my camaro. Just left it in my pocket all the time.

I lost my spare key somewhere... so I bought a spare off of ebay with a blank switchblade. I'm going to have it cut and program it as my second key.

Here's what I puchased

Takes a hacksaw, a 1/16x5/16 roll pin, a little patience, and about ten minutes. I turned both of my keys back to switchblade keys. I love'em!

You can find the the switchblade keys on Amazon and Ebay. I think they are pricey, >$50.00. Anyone have the new "regular key", was wondering what it looks like.

I think I paid under $12 for new switch blade key blanks. They were a tight fit in my fob. I didn't bother with getting them cut yet.

They kept sending recall letter so I just brought one of my spares in to do the recall. He asked me where my other key was and I said I forgot it and he to bring the others by to do those too. But there was no way in hell I'm doing my other keys!

I had my key cut today I purchased off of ebay with a blank blade. It cost me $50 but they came to me and cut it for me.

Just paired it by starting the car for about 5 seconds (just after the chime stopped), and turned off the car, starting with the new key. Started just fine. I let it run for about 10 seconds. Key fob works flawlessly.

When i first bought my camaro i had the switch keys, then i took it in when i got the recall and they gave me those hanging keys. I got annoyed and tired of that so i just reversed the recall buy cutting the key out of the fob and re-installing it into the switch blade thingy.

Yesterday I had my key cut so I can have a second key ( as I mentioned one had been misplaced ). Love having a switchblade! The recall was done prior to purchase.

How ironic is this....

Some guy pulls next to me on my way home later on that day at a red light and asked me if I had my key recall done and did I like having a separate small key instead. I told him I just went back to the switchblade key just a few hours earlier and explained how to program the keys... He mentioned he was able to keep the old keys as well as getting the new ones. They must have not taken out the blades in his original fobs.
