Yes, I only had one key, wife lost her set, thus the story. I told the service guy I just wanted one of the new keys programmed, I would program the second new key keeping my original key as a spare in case of another lost key. That's when he told me I couldn't program the second key, the dealership has to program the keys. After a couple more words I just said to myself screw it, not going to argue with the guy. On the bill though, they didn't break down the cost of the individual keys, the programing or the cutting. He just lumped it into one total price and added a ten dollar "misc." charge to the new keys combined charge.

Bottom line here is always maintain three keys for your vehicles that have an OBP capability. Therefore if you lost one of the three you can swing by a locksmith or order a new one online and your set.

You paid a lot which sucks but oh well, you have three keys and that's that.

I have three now. Not long before my wife lost her key I thought to myself I need to get a third key to program just in case. I never did and paid the price. I suppose it is a word to the wise.

You should try some makes like Volvo or BMW,it can cost as much as $500 per key.
