Seattle Volkswagen Keys and VW Key Fob Programming

Volkswagen keys can be made by Element Locksmith LLC.  Most people can’t believe that this can be done.  We have invested in the technology and training to make Volkswagen keys and do VW key fob programming. We will arrive at your location within 30 minutes and make your Volkswagen keys from scratch right on the spot.

When you lose Volkswagen keys, the dealership is unable to help you on the same day because they have to order a specific key for your specific vehicle by VIN from the manufacturer.  This process takes 2 to 3 business days.  Furthermore, you will have to tow your vehicle to the dealership for them to program the key.

This is why several Volkswagen dealerships work exclusively with Element Locksmith LLC, so you the customer, can avoid the frustration of having to wait several days for Volkswagen keys to be made.
