2012 Honda CR-V: A Real Key

February 26, 2013

2012 Honda CR-V

Look, the 2012 Honda CR-V has a real old-fashioned key. Well, not completely old school as it has buttons to lock/unlock.

But I mean the design. The key itself doesn't fold away into a piece of plastic. And it has a metal key, not just a plastic fob.

It takes up space in my purse.

Which type of car key do you prefer, truly old school like our Buick Grand National, sleek and modern like our Porsche 911, or can't-miss-it like our Honda CR-V?
