It will be a lifesaver!
Why do I need a spare car key you ask?
In the olden days if you lost your only car key you would have to arrange and pay to have your vehicle towed to the dealership.
Then you would have to wait up to a matter of weeks for a new key to be ordered and programmed.
If you need your car within that time you would then have to hire a car, an additional expense.
So what’s the good news?
The good news is- nowadays there are mobile auto locksmiths that will fabricate a new key at the roadside for you, usually in under an hour! This eliminates the tow truck hire and the weeks of waiting!!!
replacement keys are also more expensive from the dealership.

It also takes more time to do a replacement key as the doors and sometimes also the ignitions have to be picked and decoded to obtain the correct key code.
From an existing key, it can be copied directly.
