The Problem: Need New Car Keys
We’ve all had that moment. We reach into our pocket and the keys aren’t there. You retrace your steps to try to find your keys, you stop by the customer service desk and the lost and found is empty, and just like that you have to replace your car keys. Or maybe you left your keys on the counter for just a minute while you put the groceries away, only to find your five-year-old is ninety seconds in to an experiment involving your key fob and the microwave. Panic sets in. You scrape the goo that used to be your key fob off the bottom of the microwave and call the dealership to get a replacement.
Dealerships are asking astronomical prices to replace car keys and keyless entry remotes (fobs). Nearly $500 in some places. We called around to car dealerships across the country and found an average cost for a new key and remote to be about $325. That’s a lot of money. And it’s money you don’t have to spend. You could try a locksmith, that might save you $100. But what if there was a way to save even more?
