Paying for technology
It’s no secret that as our vehicles become more complex and technologically advanced, the parts that are in our cars, trucks and SUVs become more expensive. We love the technological advances but they come with a price.
For example, in years past if you lost a car key and needed another, you would take your spare key and get a copy made for a few dollars. However, today with locking mechanisms and other extras like remote starters programmed on your key fob, getting a new key cut and programmed can cost $200 or more.
Read on to learn how much some common car parts could cost you if you need to replace them – some of the items might surprise you. Please note that the prices given are just estimates and your actual cost could be lower or higher.
