Valet parking

Just had a thought. My wife and I will be taking my Jeep to an event in a few weeks which only has valet parking. Do valet parking attendents know how to start these Jeeps? Would I need to explain how to start it?

Re: Valet parking

I think by now people who deal with cars daily would know how the push button thing is. Or at least we hope so. LOL

Especially that all the new Altimas, Murano's, and Maximas have them.

Re: Valet parking

I would take another vehicle. Not because of the "knowing how to start it" issue, but because I would not trust a complete stranger with my Jeep.

Re: Valet parking

Look at it this way

Not only do I build Jeeps.

I'm also a part time valet dude.

I GET SICK AND TIRED OF PEOPLE WITH PUSH BUTTON START VEHICLES ASKING ME IF WE KNOW HOW TO START THEIR VEHICLE. I WANT TO TELL EACH AND EVERY LAST ONE OF THEM THAT I WASN'T BORN YESTERDAY NOR DID I START WORKING HERE YESTERDAY AND YOUR VEHICLE IS NOT THE FIRST PUSH-BUTTON START VEHICLE TO PULL UP HERE AND IT DANG SURE WON'T BE THE LAST.

Does that answer your question?

Re: Valet parking

I too do some valet work, and while your at it, i'd like to add that I know to put your Saab in reverse to get the key, I know your prius is running even though it sounds like its off, and I know about your bmw's over complicated shifter! Back to the question though, I think I read you can pop out the button and use the fob like a regular key, so if they seem inept then that may be the least complicated option.

Since you obviously have a lot of knowledge about valet parking I will ask you. My current jeep has a valet key which I can give to the valet and I don't have to give him my regular key that has my house keys and other keys on it. What are we supposed to do with the 2011's just hand them the wireless key FOB with our other keys attached? Or maybe people don't attach any other keys to the FOB, I don't know. Just curious what other people are doing, and how they are handling the issue?

Yes, Steve just unlock (the little tab which slides left/right) the physical key (which you use for the glove box) and all your keys will be attached to the physical key, while you hand the FOB to whoever.

Thanks! Good to know.
BTW my dealer just called to say my new Overland arrived at the dealership this afternoon, and I can pick it up tomorrow.

Re: Valet parking

How long ago was your order placed? Just want to get an idea on how long factory orders are currently taking.
