Yup, that's the going rate for a new key or copy. Some dealers can be a little cheaper, like $150. But your in the ballpark. Now you have that extra key the next time you lose one.


It is right. Your dealer programmed the new key, not the car. The cost sounds lower than others makes that I have heard of. http://autos.aol.com/article/smart-car-keys/


The price is about right for a newer vehicle (especially one with keyless entry). If you don't currently have a remote start system on the CR-V, the 3rd key could be used for that (since they normally need to install a key within the car to make it operate properly)...Just a thought, if you hadn't considered it. BTW, you're lucky the airport found the other set!
