Unbelievable response from the Toyota customer care team. Key problem- locksmith?

On my way back home, I had to stop the car and step out to take a call. When I got done, I realized that I had locked myself out. I had the number to the customer services. I tried calling them, but to no response. I had to spend the night at a friends house, because my house keys are in there too. Now, I can’t get into my car or house. Is calling a locksmith a safe option?


Less is more. Stay pure. Stay poor.
Locksmiths are fine, but not as awesome as hlsmiths. Just don't call the Ghostbusters unless the car is possessed.


No cake for spunky
Its a safer option than breaking the windows to get it.

One suggestion in the future is put a spare house and car key in your wallet. Of course you have to be careful then, not to leave the wallet in your car....[which is what I commonly do].

I never go to a dealer for anything except for parts that are only available from a dealer. I try not to give them my VIN, either.

A Slim Jim costs much less than a locksmith, but where to keep it? Examine the interior of a junk yard door for your make & model to see how best to use this tool.

So, you find talkstats, go to the trouble of registering and then your first post is about calling a locksmith. :eek:

In all my time in this community (and its been some time) this has to be the weirdest first post I have ever seen.

Nice job Makhimckenzie, hope to hear more from you!

And now I'm seeing hyperlinks to locksmths?? I need a lie down.
