If you’ve ever been locked out of your car, you know just how inconvenient it can be. Fortunately, our Lexus service experts here at the Fields Lexus Glenview have some tips for dealing with this annoying situation. Here’s what you should do if you get locked out of your vehicle.
Keep Your Cool
First of all, don’t panic. This situation can be annoying, but if you stay calm, you can easily figure out what your options are. Then, you’ll be back behind the wheel in no time.
Remember Your Spares
You probably have a spare key or two, so think carefully about where they are. Are they in your home? Does a friend or family member have one? Can someone bring you a key? If you think about it, you’ll probably realize that someone is able to help you out.
Talk to a Dealer
If you can’t find your spare key, your car dealer might be able to get you one. These keys will at least open the door for you so you can get your keys out.
Take Advantage of Roadside Assistance
If you’re enrolled in a roadside assistance program, this is the kind of situation it’s made for. Though most people think of these programs when they need a tow, many roadside assistance programs can assist with lock-outs as well.
Even if you didn’t enroll in a program yourself, try to remember if something else you’ve signed up for may give you roadside assistance. For example, your credit card might offer it, or your vehicle might offer it if you purchased a Certified Pre-Owned model.
