How do I get a new car key without the original?

I lost my only copy of my car key, and now I’m stuck without a car! What’s the best way to get a new car key without the original?

Answer
Losing your car keys can be frustrating. Luckily, getting a new one is easy! You can get a copy of your key made without the by visiting a dealership or locksmith. That said, it could cost from $150 to $600 depending on your car’s make and model.
While they may take a little longer, you’ll probably be better off price-wise with a locksmith since dealerships tend to charge more for car parts and services. Regardless of which option you choose, bring your registration card, vehicle title, and driver’s license to help them confirm your identity. Otherwise, they may not be able to help!
