2005 Outback Wagon 3.0 L.L. Bean
Dealer stock # tag is on all the cars in the lots
That’s interesting because it’s not cheap to have one of these keys made. They probably had sold the car and didn’t care.I don't think it's anything pertaining to the car. But I wouldn't worry about it. I found an actual key to the Legacy we traded in, and the dealer wasn't interested when I told them about it.
What a disappointment - I actually preferred the grand conspiracy theory.It is a pin for a key management system.
I don't know. Since it's threaded it would be a really poor key control system. You could just get the key by unscrewing the device!It might be a different model/manufacturer of a key control system. It's certainly the best explanation I've seen here.
Where are the rest of the grenade?
Yep, could be a "key" to an atomic bomb!
I think we all have too much time on our hands, and too little of it spent outside in healthier, social-distance compliant pursuits!Do new subarus come with a chastity belt ?
now you got me thinking. at that specific dealer = the screw could go into a peg board or rod to hold keys. like handy for the sales / service / lot / prep people to walk from car to car using.As for the big tag with the VIN on it in the OP's picture, that's a standard dealership stock tag. The other thing on there has absolutely nothing to do with the car, or any key inventory control system I've ever seen or heard of. We all use electronic systems for key tracking in the dealerships around here. (And we can still lose the darned things.)
