Very expensive to replace the key/remote
One of the two keys to our 2006 RAV4 had been showing some wear for a while. When we picked it up from the dealer after a recent service, there was a circular hole in the middle of the Lock button. I went back to the dealer today, explaining that while the key had some where, it was perfectly functional when we dropped off the vehicle and now isn't. They agreed to split the cost of a replacement. I was then shocked to find that a replacement key costs $440, so even at 50%, it will cost us $220!
Anyone here know if that $440 price is real, or did they quote me an elevated figure so that they could still make money when I pay them the "50%?"
