I have a 2003 Buick LeSabre Custom.
Bought a key blank, and had it cut to open doors & trunk.

we usually add keys for a customer for free as long as they are nice,polite,
and thank us when we are done...
the ones that come up swearing about the cost of the key they just bought
from the parts dept, and try and demand we program it for free,they usually
pay or leave without it being done...it is specified how to do it in the
owners manual after all...
Fewer drivers will ever read the owners manual these days. I'm convinced that
there is a job opportunity for some people... be in the business of reading
correct information out of an owners manual.
I'm just the opposite. When I got my most recent GM car, I read the owners
manual, and then I read or browsed the Helm service manuals.
