Consistency is key

If you frequently lose your car keys, it’s time to pick a spot and stick with it. At the end of the day, we all face some sort of brain fatigue, which can cause us to forget where we placed those keys. Make a plan, stick to it and always have a spare set.

Lose your keys and then find them on the car seat with the door locked? Check out our blog story on what happens next if you lock your keys in the car. If you are looking to replace more than just your set of car keys, find out if a new car or a used car is better for you.
