If you only have one key and it gets lost or damaged, most vehicle owners find that they have no option but to go to the main dealer. Some even find that they need to have their whole locks changed. This takes time and is very expensive. When you go to sell your vehicle, not having a spare key can also seriously impact the trade-in value.
