Built Jeep Tough
I love the new key fob and how I can leave it in my pocket without having to take it out. The only problem is that I lose it a lot because its out of sight and out of mind. So I've been trying to keep it on my key ring in order to keep it from getting permanently lost.

Well leaving for work on Friday, I opened the clasp on the carabiner key ring, my keys fell off one by one. It was raining and I thought I picked them all up. Now I left my Jeep at work for the weekend and used the "company car" until Sunday when I had to go home. That's when I realized my Jeep key wasn't on my ring and I probably left it at my front door on the ground.

Well, I live in New Jersey and got slammed with Hurricane Irene and massive amounts of rain and flooding. I was sure my expensive fob was destroyed due to it sitting in three days of mud and water.

Nope. Everything works as if it never happened, with no loss of reception or corrosion inside. I'll keep an eye on it to make sure the battery stays clean, but for right now THANK YOU JEEP!

I screwed up and went swimming with my fob in my pocket. It was totally submerged for half an hour. I'm an engineer, so on the way back to the car I explained to my kids exactly how I had damaged it and what we would have to do to recover from my mistake ... but the fob worked perfectly. I don't know why. :o

Yes, indeed, MB is famous for their electrics. No, wait, I mean infamous.
