Update by user Jul 27, 2013
Walmart started engine fire in my suv.Please read below.
I have no peace of mind driving my vehicle. The vehicle cannot be sold without telling that it has been in an electrical fire who would want to buy it?
It's been over a year, very stressed out from this.
Walmart won't be accountable until their sale are hurting.If you shop with them becareful what you purchase, they don't care about public safety.

Walmart made keys for my suv, I turned my vehicle on walked in the house came back out and engine had started a fire.I just happened to be smart enough to bring my nieces in with me.
Other wise they would have been strangling in smoke when I returned to the vehicle a few minutes later.
The mechanic at Matt's Foreign Auto ordered new parts when they came available, he tested my old key against the new parts no problem. Then the mechanic tested the Walmart keys which causd the engine to act erracticaly and begin to smoke. The Walmart keys were proven to be bad and were made the wrong size.
I asked Walmart to send someone out to the mechanic shop to test the vehicle themselves Walmart refused. I asked why did Walmart not have signs up anywhere of the possible dangers when having keys made at Walmart, that was no big deal to them. Walmart offered to pay only for the repair would not pay for the devaluation of the vehicle and rental fees. I was with out my truck almost two months waiting on parts and trying to get the issue resolved with Walmart.
I no longer feel comfortable driving the truck either. I asked Walmart to notify the public of the dangers and that some of their keys can start electrical fires in vehicles; this is when Walmart then withdrew the offer to pay for anything.
This has caused me extreme mental stress too.
