    For my birthday I wanted a new key for my car. The electronic part of my key died some time ago, but I was just dealing with it. Well The car has 1 key hole in the entire car. I have to unlock the car to unlock the trunk. With a 2 year old, it can be abit ann9oying. Well We now have another little bundle of joy coming, and I just wanted one less thing to stress about with getting loaded into the car. So DH surpised me today with my new key. He gave it to me early becuase he knew I would question such a large hit on the account. Ready for this..........$215 for one single key!!!! They tried to charge an additional $93 "programming" fee but they dropped it when DH was about to change his mind LOL.

    If this thing break in the time that the last one did...they will be dreading the day I bought thier car!

    Ok...venting over, thanks for listening LOL

    My son just bought a key for his Grand Prix. It was $83.00. I thought that was bad. You win. Crazy isn't it?

    Oh man, that's awful! I just let my husband know so he would stop taking his KEY ownership so lightly!

    My husband told me it would cost $179 to replace the keys for our new Camry [​IMG] I'm sure most of that cost is due to having to buy them from the stealers......I mean dealers [​IMG]

    My aunt said it would cost her $230.00 to get another key for their GMC Sierra.

    And my cousin has a Honda hybrid, and she lost her key...it took $480.00 to get a new one.

    Yep, the price is high due to a computer chip embeded in the key.

    Just wait until you have to replace the ignition switch...
