Maybe I'm missing something but wouldn't it have been cheaper to call a locksmith to get into your car than breaking out the window?
Sorry you had such a rough day.
This is what I've heard as well... someone told me the side window is the most expensive window on the car.My Uncle ran a glass shop in Ponca City for around 40 years.
He ran into your situation a lot with people breaking the side window to get access.
He said the windshield was a cheaper overall fix than the side window.
Be interesting to hear what your costs will be.
No matter what, I always got my keys, and the really important ones I carry two of, one in each pocket!
Would have been cheeper to call a lock smith for $50. May be more now. Last time that happened to a GF of mine it was that much.Just another one of those days. Wife forgets her cell ( I never carry mine unless I am driving) We get our Aldi shopping done and hit Walmart for the odds and ends we need. Get that done, load the stuff in the car, wife jumps in starts it and jumps out closing the door. Keys, purse, everything is now locked in the car. Again I am not carrying my keys either since I am not driving.
I go to get my emergency key hided back in my wallet. Wife "Oh I forgot to give that back last time we had the car worked on". So standing in Walmart parking lot at the car as it is running while the wife goes inside and uses a phone to call the daughter. 2 hours later they have decided to call an Uber, except we have no house keys. Can not reach AAA. I finally send the wife in to buy a hammer and knock out a side window.
We make it home and the first thing I did was get my emergency key back. Some days I hate my life.
