Crosstrek valet key question

10

Asked by Dec 30, 2013 at 05:31 PM about the Subaru XV Crosstrek

Question type: General

I picked up a new 2014 Crosstrek today, was given a valet key with the regular keys.  However, the valet key seems/looks virtually identical to the regular key, only difference I've found so far is it sets off the alarm if used to unlock the door.  It locks and unlocks the glovebox just fine, which is what I though a valet key was NOT supposed to be able to do?

You're thinking is correct. A true valet key should only allow the valet attendant to unlock the doors and start/ drive the vehicle. It should NOT be able to unlock the glove box, trunk, console, etc. It's also usually stamped "Valet" on the key head as well. To avoid confusion with your regular key. I'd bring this to your Subaru Dealer's attention. HTH. -Jim
