Key fob smells like BBQ sauce, BBQ sauce stains found
 
LOL, like the title says, I found BBQ sauce stains on my key fob in the cracks. Smells like it too, but I havent tasted it yet. Why you may ask? Well, I dropped my car off at the dealership last week and I got it back a few days ago....someone had lunch with my fob/car.....:)

Not sure I would be as amused about this as you.

Have the dealer replace it.

Was it cajun style?

I wonder if this is even my fob. Can the dealer reprogram an existing key for my car? Maybe they gave me a 2007 one and hope it breaks after 4 years...

:rofl: No, you can relax on that score. The key blade wouldn't match your door lock cylinder.

Your car was at the dealer for several days--what were they working on? I wouldn't worry too much about it as long as it was something that requires road testing--especially multiple tests if it was a tricky problem. The tech probably combined a road test with a lunch run. Otherwise I would be plenty annoyed and would let the dealer know it.

Should have been more careful with the sauce, though. :thumbdwn:

Leave it to someone named Spicy Tofu to be offended how their key fob smells.

I bet the dealer freshen up the fob key with that valet key lubricant. It really stinks.

they were working on the fuel tank issue. I think they did a small road test as the mileage was 1.5 higher than when I handed it over. Im pretty sure it was BBQ sauce haha. I realized my key smelled like BBQ sauce and upon further inspection, you can see the sauce dried and crusted in the cracks. I could careless what they do with my car, its going back in 4 years anyways lol. They couldve at least did a better job cleaning my keys...i guess im glad I didnt find "other" sauces....(Harold's car comes to mind)
