    anyone else cant find keys that fit

    Ive been all over central Va to over 4 dealers. WHERE ARE THE REPLACEMENT KEYS!?!? ive spent over 40$ on keys that will "fit".. they dont. the part of the key that sticks out of the ignition will not fit past the butterfly guard. they work fine for the doors/hatch. i really dont want to grind down my keys.

    Pretty sure if you can do an engine swap cutting the head on the ignition key to look decent isn't that hard. There's a lot of harder problems to solve on these car.

    me too. My 2 keys are both by COLE. Fit's perfectly.A larger key place will have them.
    I installed an Auto Loc system for anti-theft. The fob opens the doors and without it the car will NOT start. Even with the key in the ignition.
    The bad thing was that it took me all day to install it! $100 off of FEE PAY.
    You going to go push button start? I never though of that idea,5 years ago.

    I got lucky when I was under the car doing something.

    Found a pristine key in one of those little "Hide-A-Key" boxes!

    It's the "big" key with the rubber head.

    OH, What A Feeling!
