Hyundai Bellville Cape Town / faulty key

1 South Africa

I am the owner of a 2005 atos. I recently needed to purchase a new key as the old one had become worn and would not function properly anymore. I went to the hyundai agency in Bellville, Cape Town where I had purchased the car.I was told by them to buy a key from them and take it to a locksmith to be cut, then bring car and key to them to have the key programmed to my car, s computer. I duly did as instructed and after keeping my car the entire day at their workshop I was then told they were unable to program the new key and suddenly I must now buy a whole new computer for the car! As I am a pensioner I find this most unacceptable, car computers costing what they do. Is this a typical problem with hyundai cars or could something else be done to help my situation?<br />
