I have a 2005 chevy malibu i recently purchased from a private dealer, and I do not have an entry key to my car. Somehow, the entry key is different from the ignition key (assuming the car was once stolen or in an accident).

He told me all I had to do was go up to chevy, give them my VIN number and they would give me a new one for a small fee.

Well today I called up to chevy (gm) and they quoted me a price between $500 to $600!!!!!!! I can't afford that right now and I hate to leave my car parked with the doors unlocked. Please tell me there is a way around this expense!?

Look, here is how this works, the key has a chip in it, I don't know how Chevy operates, but that chip normally only matters in the ignition, in other words they can cut you a plain-Jane, or valet key for about <$100. The chip key is so much because it has to be programmed to the car etc, you can also hire a locksmith to make a key for your doors.
