I honestly dont see what peoples gripe with the key is?

It opens and starts my car? Not sure what anyone else would need?

I always thought a key was a key or unlocking things and starting things so
I wonder whether I`m missing something here cos I`ve never seen a joke key

I'd sooner have the "joke" Honda key than the fancy VW flip key which starterd the Golf where:
  • electrics failed
  • driver window dropped out TWICE
  • rear wash wipe leak triggered alarm, even at our wedding
  • 18500 of disappointment
That's why I have no key gripes!

A flip key fits your pocket better.
Quite simple

If your only complaint is the key, you must be very happy with your car.

Whats wrong with the key anyway ?

Thats one gripe i ahd when i test drove the civic was the key (al a 80s!). Another gripe was no rear wiper and poor rear visibility. But all this can be overlooked as its such a good car overall! All these things are minor.

If you look at the flip key thread, one of the guys in here is getting a prototype made of a flip key so you might just have one after all

that key

I just feel that a car that is so high tech should not have a key from a 1980s morris marina.
