So the dealership made a new key for you based on the lock cylinder being original and it wasn't? Depending on the locksmith, they can help you.

"Strapped for cash" is the real problem here- and then trying to deal with a complicated 21st century car- at least you are getting educated- like going to college for free- and here is the lesson: if you are poor, like me, get a simpler machine that you can afford to keep running- like something built before 1995- really, think about it, all this trauma for a KEY?!!!
