I had mine cut at CT. It works fine, just for some of the locks I have to not insert it all the way. *shrugs* better than paying stealer price

lol the specialty store i went to didn't want to cut my keys.. (we don't cut steel it'll break our machines etc..)

walked into canadian tire ,no problem guy cut them and they kinda work

car starts, doors open but the trunk won't work with these new keys nor will the glove box.

i also got an ilco key that starts the car, locks the glove box and nothing else..

i need like 3 keys if i'm not using the original
