Frequently Asked Questions
How should I go about replacing the keys for my car?
You can approach this issue in one of several different ways. The first is to take your current set of keys to the dealership where you bought the car and ask them to cut replacement keys for you. They should be able to do this without problem, although it may cost more than you were expecting to pay. Unfortunately, high repair or replacement prices are a common problem at auto dealerships.
