Spare key for my Liberty

Just bought a 2011 Liberty Jet.
Need to get a spare key for it just in case.
Dealership is telling me $210, don't want to pay that if I don't have to
Any suggestions?

Is the $210 for the key/cut/program or just the key?

Iirc the key itself is about $50-60.

Too bad you don't already have two keys because if you have two then you can do it yourself at home.

It already has remote start, probably should of included that in my original post.
I don't really NEED the spare key but with my luck... lol
I don't even care if the other key can remote start the car or not who knows if it does for $210 I didn't even tell the dealership the car has remote start.

Will sounds like at the mercy of the high programming cost at dealer a spare key is important never no if lose that one or chip breaks or becomes faulty would be bad day for you.

Keys are not what they once were...they now include a transponder that will only work with the matching ignition. Dealership is your only option.

It was the same for me when I bought mine used-- it only came with 1 key. I just couldn't see spending $200+ on a second key. So I spent a few bucks and got a plain old key cut without a transponder. I keep that spare key in my desk at home, just in case I ever lock the good key in the vehicle. It just opens the doors, but has saved me at least once.

Yea I can't see spending that much especially after I just bought the car,registered it,insured it etc lol. I'll probably do what you did just so I can open the door if I happen to lock them in their. Then eventually get the key from the dealer ship
Thank you

I'd go for the extra key. if you loose your only one then pay to get it towed to the dealer and instead of just programming 1 key they'll have to produce a whole new set. Been there done that, lot of time & money wasted

You can tape the current key under the dashboard and have regular keys made without the chip. The only issue with this is that it makes it easier for someone to steal.

But, on the other hand you would always have a key on hand if needed in an emergancy. Of course if the doors were locked getting to the key would be another challenge.

Yet, I may use this idea on my 1999 Mustang GT. Of course for the Mustang the key is only $120 to buy and program.
