Second, if you didn’t have a working key, you would have to pay and arrange for a tow. Third, you would have to wait 2-3 days and pay dealership prices to have your high security car key cut and programmed.
High security car keys are also known as laser cut keys. Most cars on the road today use high security car keys because in the 1990s car thefts skyrocketed and car manufacturers were forced to what upgrade the quality and security of car keys. Today 90% of laser cut keys have micro chips embedded in them for added security these keys are also referred to as micro chip keys. Interesting enough, Mercedez-Benz, Volvo, and BMW were some of the first car manufacturers in the late 1980s who introduced such keys. To be clear the definition of a high security key is a key that is cut by a high security key cutting machine and does not necessarily have a micro chip in it.
