Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. The most economical way to get a new key is, if you have the time to wait, to order the blank key online, and you should be able to find a locksmith to program it for around $75-$100. Total, it will run you about $150. Your other options are to go to the dealer, and we all know you will have to bring a spare arm and leg with you.(I'm guessing around $400). You could also get the key from the locksmith and let him/her program it then.(I'm guessing around $250-$300).
