Has anyone been able to get an extra/replacement key made? If so, how much did it cost?

In my so far futile search I have come up with almost nothing. Have called about 20 or so locksmiths in my area and with almost all of them I get someone who barely speaks english, and with most as soon as I say '2012' for the year of the car they interupt me mid sentance with "Icannothelpyou" and immediately hangs up. The others simply have no idea if they can or not.

I did, however, find 2 that said they could make keys for it, however they both quoted me about $150 per key. Considering this isn't a laser cut key, that seems rather expensive to me.

I have also tried the two dealers closest to me and they said they can order me the blank for it for $7, however they cannot cut the key and I'd have to find a locksmith for that.

We dont cut keys either, locksmith has better equipment and knowledge.

Do you have a picture of the key ?

I'll walk next door tomorrow and see what our Hyundai dealership is doing for these new keys. Have you called Hyundai America yet?

We have had 4 keys made for our new 2012 Accent, with no luck! These were ordered by our Hyundai dealer and came straight from the factory by using the VIN number. None of them work! I have been to the dealer 3 times regarding getting a spare key. Hyundai American says "have the dealer cut a key from our original". NO ONE has a blank for this vehicle as it is "too new"!! Not the dealer, nor a locksmith AND our dealer does not cut keys at their location, they send out for them. No locksmith can get a blank yet for them. I am freaking out as my daughter has this vehicle 1500 miles away from home with One key. I was assured at the time of purchase that the roadside assistance 1-800 number would help her out if she were ever locked out. I ask "REALLY"? How? when I can't get a freakin' spare key made BEFORE the emergency happens!!! Hyundai America has yet to answer me as to how to get a blank now for this vehicle, for us to take it to a locksmith on our own. Oh, by the way, the dealer charged $30.00 per spare , but of course had to refund us as they didn't work!

I became a 2012 Hyundai Accent owner at the end of June and I had 3 extra keys made using the VIN number, sad to day none of them work: then 2 more times the dealer reordered then and each time they failed to work. I have a case number with Hyundai Motor America, they promised me I will be contacted as soon as the issue is resolved. Hyundai Motor America has knowleg that the new keys dont work.

Have you tried ordering the keys with the ID number which came with the second set?
What I'm referring to is described on page 4-3 of the 2012 Owners Manual.

You don't make keys from the VIN. You make keys from the key-code on the black tag submitted by the dealer when they delivered the car. My key code is T-291X. X being a number from 0-9. Classified, I could tell you, but then I'd have to...well, you know. My dealer, using the KEY code, cut me two keys for my 2012 for 8 bucks a key. Best advice is steer clear of hardware stores. Story is, you could put the key into the ignition, turn the key to start the car and the ignition is stuck in the START position. By the time you figure out how to get the battery disconnected, you'd likely fry the starter.

You know, having they key code that came with they keys would probably be helpful.

The fact remains that they should be able to determine your key code by VIN.

If for some reason Hyundai has omitted linking VIN to Keycode, they are going to have a **** of a time getting new keys to customers.

When I got home and took the extra key out of the manual holder, I looked at the little plastic tab that apparantly had the key code on it, took it of they key ring and tossed it without thinking.
