I lost the key to a 2014 Mustang rental car. I called the local Ford dealer who said that they would be able to replace the key and remote for $315. I decided to call a locksmith to see if it could be done cheaper and they said it would be $115. I thought great! I didn’t realize it but it was a referral service and the guy shows up and says that it is going to be $387. I felt trapped since it was going to cost me $65 for the trip charge. So I said to go ahead and make the key. It turns out that he created just a key and no transponder. I was livid, this guy is a complete ripoff artist. The state of California should make the referral services to identify themselves as such and to say that the cost could be 300% more than quoted. TD Locksmiths are crooks, plain and simple.
