Brought my car to a local mechanic I’ve been using a while for a Check Engine light. The repair was too expensive for right now, but the car was driveable in the short term. He didn’t charge me anything for checking the code. I went to pick it up the next morning and he couldn’t find the car key or the separate fob for the doors/alarm. Thankfully I had my wife’s set on me. I had to go to work, so he said he’d continue to look for them through the day. It’s lunchtime now and nothing.
What are my rights here? Would he have to re-key the car and supply a new key and fob? This would give me peace of mind, but then makes my wife’s set unusable, so this key (and fob?) would need to be replaced also. Would I be on the hook for any of this?
Very frustrated as I don’t like confrontation at the best of times.
