Are car keys worth the price?

Replace car key in 1980 =$2.00.
Replace car key in 2014 =$50 to $600
If you lose the key and fob, you can expect a dealer replacement and programming to cost $200 or more, depending on the vehicle and the key’s design. A Lexus dealer quoted $374 for a new key, fob, and programming, and a BMW dealer said replacement keyless fobs could be as much as $500, depending on the model.
If you don’t need the key right away, one way to save is to buy a replacement over the Internet. A Honda dealer, for example, told us it would cost $200 to replace the key for a 2005 Accord. At KeylessRide, one of several sites that advertise keys at discount prices, we bought a Honda key for that car for $54; an off-brand version was listed for about $40. Having a locksmith cut and program the key added $80, for a total of $134.
