The Saab was starting to become a money pit with all the electrical issues that kept stranding me locally and on road trips. Technology in cars sure have come a long way in 12 years.
Your 2012 Focus came with only 1 key ? My 2005 zx5 SES came with 2 keys and 2 electronic commands . 175$ for a single key is way too much, I paid 85$ at my local Ford Dealer for a 2003 Focus Key 2 years ago.
