We just bought a 2004 C70 - love it - with only 34,000 miles on it. The car is beautiful and runs great. The dealer where we bought the car only had one key and one key fob. Do extra keys have to be bought at a Volvo dealership and what is the approximate cost? My husband is always misplacing his keys so I need more than just
the one. Thanks.

Most likely dealer only, unless you find somebody with a Volvo key coder. Check and make sure you have the normal key for start/door/trunk/glovebox and not the valet key start/door. Unless the ignition has been changed then the VIN should be all you need to get a new one. Never bought or priced one, but I would wager you spending ~$140. Hopefully they give you a deal on one, gl.

Bought the replacement key at the Volvo dealership. The key and the key fob cost $295.00. We had to take the car in because they had to reprogram something and had to reprogram the existing key also. Cost a lot but I feel so much better now that we have two keys.

$295 for a key is freakin' ridiculous. All because of the insurance companies! We pay so they don't have to!!!!

True, but that price also included a keyless entry remote.

Yeah, they're stiff! But I don't think its the insurance companies as much as it is Volvo Corporate and dealership greed. All these new keys with the voo-doo 'chips' implanted to talk to the sensor in the key hole? Its obscene! My son's 528i came with one key from the PO (private, no dealer), and the key was butt ugly and only worked remotely intermittently though it always started the car. No, it wasn't the valet key. We ordered a new, complete key with the built-in remote, and a new lighted but non-remote key with the Roundel Logo. Very handsome. The full remote key, came cut from the 'factory' but needed programming locally. The non-remote key was $75 plus 'programming' for another $80. The full remote was $140 with the programming another $80. So, we coughed up a lot or money just to feel like 'Real' car owners and just tried not to stare too hard. The 'tech' at the dealership really looked right at home as he sat in the car, locked both doors, with the lock button held down for 3 seconds or some such HS, then strutted out of the car triumphantly and revelled in working the remote back and forth so we could all hear the 'Squeal' of the whistle device and watch the parking and brake lights 'Wink' at us, as if to snicker at the saps who just made payroll for one of their car washers![font="Microsoft Sans Serif"][/font] Greed! But it all works to this day! Ain't life Grand?
