Thanks. Yes some companies (Toyota) are running short on chips, so delivering vehicles with one fob and promise to send 2nd when available
Yeah- a lot of Toyotas that equipped with the Smart Key / proximity key system are only being delivered with one fob right now. They are putting a little 2x2" sticker on the rear passenger window that explains that Toyota will arrange for a second fob to be given at some future date. Cheaper Toyotas that don't have the proximity key system are still being delivered with two key fobs.
It seems to be somewhat hit-or-miss though. Some Smart Key-equipped vehicles are still being delivered with two keys- but it seems like a lot aren't.
There are lots of complaints on the Toyota forum that I frequent about the lack of fobs. Some people are reporting that the dealers are taking those little 2x2" stickers off themselves (it says right on the sticker that the customer should be the one that removes it- not the dealer)... and dealers are promising that the second key fobs will be delivered soon after purchase- but some people are waiting 6-8+ months... or longer.
I haven't heard of Honda having issues with key fobs though.
