Lost my lone key...what to do?
I bought my 2007 Compass three years ago used (obviously) and it only came with one key. I kept meaning to make another but never got around to it, but always kept good track of it so it didn't matter. I took it in to the shop the other day for state inspection and took the key off my key chain. When i got home i swear I put it somewhere normal, like my pocket, but when I was emptying them out for the night I couldn't find the key! I've been searching and searching for two days now and coming up empty. I called an auto locksmith and he said that it will be at least $300 to make a new one, even though it doesn't have a remote clicker or anything, it is just a transponder chip key. Should I go through a Jeep dealer? I did not buy it at a Jeep dealership. What other options might I have?
