According to my dealer, the iQ comes with only two keys -- the spare key without remote and a key with the keyless remote entry feature. That's what I got.

How many keys did you get with your iQ?

I only got one key, I'll have to read my manual more closely...I'm not a fan of the "all in one" key. I like having a separate fob for the keyless entry.

That is because you are in Canada and have the immobilizer in yours. In the US I is not a requirement to have those in the cars and so we only get one key per the manual. Sux. I got two of these keys with my '09 xB but I guess they were trying to keep costs down.

Looking at the manual on the Scion iQ, there is one "remote" key included unless you have the engine disable system. As far as I know this is not an option on the Scion iQ. Be prepared for your dealer to point this out if you are demanding a second remote key.

Wow. Are you kidding me? (embarrassed) When I said I read manuals I didn't say I read them thoroughly. LOL. I guess I got a free key just for misreading that section.

My manual states, 2 each remote keys and 1 each Valet key it is stated so, in the Warranty and Maintenance Guide on page 5 under Replacing the Key.

Okay. I thought I was losing my mind for a second. I was right! Thanks for the confirmation. The warranty book says so, however the owner's manual says something different.

I just bought mine today and it only game with a standard key. I'm reading everywhere that the keyless entry is standard, so I am going to go back tomorrow morning and figure out if they lost it or just didn't give it to me.

Has anyone not gotten at least one "remote key"?

At first, they gave me one remote key and one valet key (without remote). This is what you're supposed to get if your iQ does not come with an immobilizer, according to the Owner's Manual. However, the Warranty Booklet says you're supposed to get 2 remotes and 1 valet. Point this out to your dealer. Tell them Scion customer service also told you (as they have told me) and you'll get a total of 3 keys after all is said and done, free of charge. You'll just have to visit your dealer to have them program the new key(s) to your iQ.

I pointed this out and my dealer proceeded to call around to every other dealer in the area and it was exactly the same: each IQ came with 1 remote key and 1 valet key. I ended up just paying for a second one since my financee and I share the IQ. They're going to have a lot of curious owners with the documentation having conflicting language, but the page on replacing keys continues to mention the immobilizer engine which my model from California doesn't have.

Sorry to hear that. I've contacted Scion Customer Service myself to verify this. This is what they said. "Scion is going to make corrections to the manuals saying it will come with only one remote and one valet. But since you've pointed this out, we'll comp you the 3rd key. As soon as we get the key, we'll call you to make an appointment to have that key programmed to your car." This happened last week and I got my 3rd key free of charge.

iQs in Europe have TWO keys/ units.

Every unit (higher version) has a hidden key (if the electronic is not working). If you are close to the car, your iQ is opening automatically and the interiour-light cames up and the outside light are welcoming you.

Keep your unit in your pocket, if you leave you the iQ , touch the outside doorhandle and thats it.

Our local dealer would not go down the "2 remote keys" path. I showed them the warranty manual, and they showed me the email from Scion saying "no."

Ouch. Sorry to hear about that, Dave. I've owned a couple of cars that have remotes and my remotes look worn out after 3 years. I like that I can just switch remotes when needed.
