What a racket. . .
Lost the key to my wife's new Toyota. . . one of the fancy ones you don't put the key in to start. . . just push the button kind. . .
And now we can't find the spare so the dealer tells us to get us new keys they need to tow the car there and reprogram it and the keys . . . $650 or so to do.
You have got to be FUCKING KIDDING ME!
Give me back the days of a simple key you cut at the hardware store to make the car work.
What a F'ing joke this is. . ..
Update. still can't find the keys at home. . . and it looks like the overall cost to get this fixed on Monday will be just short of $1K. . . . yes, $1000 for new keys.
This is a major screw up on my part but also on the part of every engineer that looked at this and said "No problem, folks won't lose the keys so we don't need an easy way to make new ones. . . ."
A sad day for engineering.
