I wasn't sure whether you guys would want a post like this in general or here, so feel free to move me as necessary. I spent about 10 minutes searching various phrases, so if the information is already out there, a link is appreciated.
We purchased a 2008 Aveo from a Kia dealer that I trust, and while the car is in pristine shape (had an independent garage run a post purchase inspection for me) we only got one key from the dealer. Naturally this has us nervous as heck, since there's no spares.
We've already tried Home Depot and Ace hardware, neither store had a blank that could be cut from the existing key as a door unlocker at the very least, even after I asked the Ace guy if he was sure the machine was tuned ok (was a little irritated, didn't want to leave without keys)
So needless to say, we're in panic mode right about now. We're going to have a hard time financially recovering from the initial purchase (this couldn't have come at a worse time) so spending ~$70 a key from Chevy/the dealer isn't ideal right now.
