So basically, what they are saying is, they only want you to drive the car, with only the ignition key...not even the key with the RKE fob attached....

The problem was it was possible that a knee hit or heavier set of keys was potentially turning ignition to ACC position.
And I am going to post what repairs are needed here as well. (no re-keying necessary)
Only a longer plunger is required from what I understand.

After repair, they are still recommending a Key & key/fob only.

Maple Syrup is a limited Ontario production.
Way out West where I am, many cars per day are stolen!
Who steals cars in Canada?
Have a look at these suspicious characters!
Auto thefts plunge in era of bait cars - Surrey Leader
Even though they say the bait cars are responsible for the decline, the truth is with advanced chip key technology, I believe that is the main reason.
No maple syrup here just grow ops!

if you are worried about theft just out a hidden ign switch somewhere, that always works best on the shows. or they have those pin number immobilizers, looks way easier than two of those things
