Car keys: In need of cheap copies

In my haste to get the family back in the house after a long evening, I misplaced my keys.Ford%20Teen%20Drivers.jpg

I was sure they would reappear shortly, but it's been a month now. Fortunately we had an extra set.

I have been stunned at how expensive it is to replace these keys. $180 at Delray Honda! I bought a key online for $4 that promised to match my car, but when I brought it to Honda, I was told it wouldn't work.

So I am hunting for a way to copy complicated car keys at a moderate price. Let me know if you have found a way to avoid these high fees.
