First, here is a short list for places that can make you a new car key:

What is great about a locksmith, is that most of the time, we have more knowledge and resources to make new keys. Many locksmiths will be able to make you a working key right at your car’s location. If you do call a locksmith, we recommend you always shop around between a few of them for prices. Tip: Always get the total cost over the phone from the locksmith you use.
- Online stores, You can try to save some money by ordering your key online. A few stores we recommend you check are Ebay.com, Amazon.com, Ikeyless.com, as well as others. If you just need a key copy, you can take the new key you ordered online and your old key and copy it at many hardware stores or a locksmith shop. If you need to program the key, some vehicles will allow you to program the key yourself.
