I lost my original key so I went to Nissan and I believe the price was ~$115 for a replacement key and it would take about a week to come in. Hope this helps.

115$..... f that I say
This^^

ARe we talking about just the basic key here? No keyfob or anything? If so, thats ridiculous.. When I had a new key made for my old car it was like $10. I was actually considering getting a new key, but now, forget it.

Im guessing its the one that has the key fob but luckly I have a spare key. And as JVersa said...I said F that! I went home and grabbed my spare key. Better yet? I got a phone call from the place I thought I lost my key saying they found my key. :D

All versas no matter what model came standard with the immoblizer. Which is the chip in the key. It is exspenive to replace, and will need to be cut, and programmed to the car. Without it, the car will NOT start. It wont even make a sound. It wont even attempt to crank. If you use a non chip key and try to start, the Versa will believe it is a theift, and go into what you can call "saftey mode, or lock down mode", an will not start. If after that you put the correct key into the ignition, it will atttempt to start, but will not start. You will have to wait about 15 mins, for the Versa to go back into "normal" mode and allow you to start it. That key is very important. I believe Walmart does it for $85, dont quote me, lol I had this happen to me, this is why I know about it, lol, plus I do alot of research on the Versa.

For those of you have smart key, if your battery dies, and you put your key in the knob, the ignition will not move. Your car needs some kind of power to turn the ignition, it happened to the Sentra, Just an FYI. :)

Same here, I am looking for a blank. Would really like to get a switchblade style. Seems like a lot of older model year Nissan keys are available on eBay. But not the 2012 Versa sedan which uses a different key style.

The bare bones base model (aka the stripped version) doesn't contain the chip. Anything above that does as part of the security features.
Dealer was pretty clear to me that even my base model has a chip in the key. I needed a spare, i got a non chipped key cut just for the door lock.

Do you have the stripped version or just the 1.6 base? They are different and the stripped version is only like around $7,000.

It's as basic as the 2012 sedan gets, no AC, has manual locks, windows, and 5spd. Only thing is the Canadian base model gets a tach. The starting price in Canada is $11798.
I was surprised when they said it had a chip, but aside from the rediculous cost of replacement keys I guess it's a bonus to have the extra security.

$7000? Where are you guys from? The cheapest in USA is $10,500. Thats our base model, and its standard with chip in key. Please tell me where you got a new Versa for $7000. There is no car new in USA period for under $10K. We have 1.6 base and up. We dont have a stripped version. Please tell us what else it has or doesnt have compared to the other Versa's. My goodness, I didnt think Versa could get any more stripped than 1.6 base, but apparently it can.
