Mine was waiting for me when I got home last night from celebrating my birthday. Then I fell down the stairs. I think I broke my middle finger. Stay sober, kids!

Got mine too. I guess it's nice so you don't HAVE to call On-Star (or if you're as clumsy as I am and will wind up locking your keys AND your cell phone in the car in the most desolate place you can possibly find...it'll happen...I know it...).

About a month ago, a few of us were bored at work, so I called OnStar and asked them to unlock my doors. The first problem was that someone keyed my phone number incorrectly when I was added to the database so it took them a while to find my account. After that was all done, it still took about 15 minutes before the doors unlocked. I think I'll carry the key.

The little key and the WARNING

2nd attempt at this post. don't know where the first one went.

Got my little spare key.
On the bavk it says:

WARNING: If your vehicle is equipped with a Saturn Security System, see Owners Handbook for starting procedure.

For Emergency Use Only, Not For Prolonged Use.

1. I thought we all had a security system.
2. Can't find anything in the Owners Handbook.

3. DOES ANYONE HAVE AN IDEA WHAT THIS MEANS???

Send a message via AIM to ggccg
"Prolonged Use" must be some twisted language for "this key won't start your car".

Starting procedure is to use a key with the security chip in it.

BTW... your first post is right above the second one.

Some info...

Was at my dealership today and stopped by the parts dept where I previously spoke with the parts guy re: SKY diecast. He had no info to share, and was surprised when I told him about the Saturn Collection catalog and the reference to a 1:24 diecast & r/c models. He could find nothing in any of his books, recently received mail, or online. So he called the # he had to the company that licenses all the Saturn stuff and this is what he was told (paraphrasing here):

Saturn/GM had commissioned a toy company a license to produce SKY toy models and make them available before the holiday shopping season; but for some reason, Saturn/GM issued a hold on the license agreement and now it looks like they'll may be released during the January/February timeframe. And it is likely to be either the diecast OR the remote control car, not both. Also, there was a pewter SKY model commissioned, along with a pewter AURA, that served as part of the 15 year anniversary desk set/gift to employees with Saturn from day 1 (the Parts Mgr had one visible on his desk). The SKY was commissioned alone and orders were taken, but Saturn/GM quickly put a stop to it for some unknown reason (and she wasn't sure if they were evne shipped out).

He went on to say after the call that all AURA-related items are on hold too, as Saturn/GM is not issuing any licenses at this time. I got my hands on an AURA t-shirt given out by Saturn Corp, so I guess if they authorize it for use of their own, then it's okay. But no other companies are getting licenses at this time - AURA or SKY.

The pewter SKY was available online for about a month and was supposed to be a limited time & production thing. Orders had to be placed by 11/10 (it said 2007- typo?) and were supposed to ship in early-mid December. My boss ordered one on the 7th for my birthday and called someone (I have no idea who- she said "the lady") about it who told her that there were delays and it probably would arrive in January.

For those who haven't seen it, the link in this thread remains active, but I have no idea if you can still place an order. It no longer shows up when browsing the site.

Didn't Robert from Wind Restrictor just get a license to use Sky logos on his license plates, WRs, and frames? Maybe they just bagged the company that your parts manager called. If I miraculously find myself with some extra time on my hands tomorrow, I'll see if I can manage a call to the Saturn 800 number and ask what's up with the die-cast and R/C cars.

I did get a small wallet key, like my other Saturns have, But I don't see the point in carry a key that just opens the door. I do carry a real key in my wallet, its thicker then the "Door unlock only key", but it does start the car.
Humm A car without a inside door lock/unlock switch, and a key that only opens the door. hummmmmmmmmmmmm

I had to look online for the name the parts guy mentioned - it was American Identity, the company that issued the catalog and online site for Saturn Collection.

I manged to make the call, but the CS rep didn't have any information on a model or R/C Sky. She did offer to help me get a VUE or an S series, though!
