The cost of a chiped key is cost of the key blank+Labor to cut the key blank.


I bought locks and keys from:


Car Locks and Keys


They shipped to Canada and were cheaper than buying local. My local locksmith cut the key but was not happy.


OEM Vats Keys and secondary keys for GM vehicles and help decoding a Vats Key.


VATS keys seem to be $8-$10 Then you pay to have them cut.


So just like your headliner call many locksmiths and find the cheapest one. When you get a key cut always take the first out to the car and check it, then each one at the end.
