I laughed and agree with your comment, "...hoping Honda files for bankruptcy..."I called the dealer to see if I can get a 3rd key for my son. $468 plus $150 to program it in SoCal. I checked online and I could get it for $275 but would still need to pay $150 for programming.
At this point I am hoping that Honda files for bankruptcy as they do not deserve to be in business. I'm sure the "programming" takes 10 minutes at most.
I did follow-up with my mechanic. He said he would not use and OEM key as they are hit and miss on the programming. He could get the key from Honda for $410 and charge $79 for programming. Still that is $600 for an extra key. No thanks.
