I've locked the key in my car.
Lost the spare as well.
Can I get a replacement from Kia? And how much will it cost me?
If not, what's the cheapest solution????

OOpps - dont know how modern cars fair in gaining access.
Calling a car recovery companymay help. AA RAC etc

Local garage may know some tricks of the trade....



Really depend on how desperate and how much your willing to spend.



Smashing a side window may be more than an insurance claim on the front - a nice man will come round - remove your front screen and you can clamber in, just pop out and throw a stone at it.

Cheapest solution is to go with a car key specialist company. This is what I did one year ago when I lost my picanto key while I was changing addresses.First thing I did is I called the dealer as I needed the car for the next day. They said they need to contact the manufacturers, apply for pin numbers, etc everything was going to take 1000 working days and cost over £300. The price was too high for my budget, so i started researching different car key specialist companies. The best deal I got was £108 from http://autokeysquad.co.uk/lost-car-keys.php and they came and sorted me out the same day, at the time I chose. Great service, would definitely recommend

however, this company seems to only serve London within the M25- my brother tried to book an appointment in oxfordshire and they refused

hi there! yes of course you can get a replacement from Kia, but i'm sure they will ask you a lot of money for that! my dad recently lost his car keys to his1996 KiaConcord and after calling the dealer he started doing some research because they were asking him £200 (VAT not included!!!) for the new key plus they asked him to bring the vehicle to them which was impossible cause he didn't have his keys!! well he found this guys herehttp://www.autokeysquad.com/costwho came home and did all the work for £139! try giving them a call and hear how much they will quote you, cause obviously it depends on what model, make and year of the car. cheers!
