Takuya 2010, owned less than a month, only 19k miles.
Twice the following has happened :
Open with fob, doors unlock.
Jump in, close door, insert key. Immobiliser light continues flashing, cluster lights come on, no ignition.
Remove key, check no other keys on chain touching it, reinsert and turn, no ignition.
Press door lock buttons, try again, no ignition.
Press fob to lock, unlock, try again, no ignition.
Open door, close door, try again, no joy.
Panic, wait a minute, press lock buttons, open close door, try again, bingo!
wtf?  :-\

Do you get the same result with both keys?

Good point. Will switch keys for a while, see if problem replicates. Thanks for your help.
