Hi everyone, Just acquired used 2000 Accent and it has only the one ignition key which is a little bent. I want to get a duplicate so my husband can have one too. How difficult/expensive an exercise is this. I am in regional NSW Australia.
While I was in Brisbane picking up the car, (my daughter's old car) I asked a locksmith for advice and he said it would cost me about $170 all up for him to do it. This seems horribly expensive to me, but if I have to pay that much I will just have to bite the bullet and do it because I really do need to have a spare.

Can anyone offer me any advice?

Cheers, Judy :liebe011:

Are you sure the key has a chip? In Canada, that vintage has a regular key that can be cut by anyone that has tools to support that style of blank - my daughter's 2001 is not chipped.

If your key is chipped, there may be a maximum number of keys that can be programmed to the same code - my wife's 2007 Santa Fe can only have 2 keys/fobs programmed at one time. I'm told this is a security feature.
