Chevy Impala owners often ask if a car locksmith is able to produce Chevy Impala replacement keys. Any automotive locksmith will tell you that this is possible. The thing is, depending on the year of manufacture of your Chevy Impala, these keys may have “pass key” chips embedded which is programmed so that your vehicle recognizes it for it to start, or the “pass lock” which is profiled to be recognized by your car (again, by program). Dealers often ask for your VIN number and other verification process to establish your ownership of the vehicle before replacing your keys, and the high cost of replacement is a cause of concern as well. So if going to the car dealer is not your option, then going to an automotive locksmith is your best choice. However, not every locksmith in this area will be able to generate Chevy Impala replacement keys. The reason for this is, the locksmith who will be working on your vehicle will have to be registered with the car company to produce the set of keys that you want. Which means that they have to be legitimate and not just any dubious locksmith. After validating your ownership of the vehicle, the locksmith then would be able to cut you your key and reprogram your vehicle to accept the new set of keys.
