Is it possible to get a regular key for a 2012 Sportage as opposed to the flip style? I just got a remote starter/alarm system that came with a separate remote and its own lock/unlock buttons. Since all I need now is a key, I'd like to find an alternative to the flip key. Keeping them both makes my key chain pretty bulky.

Any thoughts?

Thanks! For some reason, I thought you couldn't copy car keys.

I'll give it a try.

that key will not start your vehicle on Canadian models, we have the immobilizer system

Not sure, the website says it will though. Worst case, it is only 8 bucks, worth a shot.

I believe that those blank keys without the "chip" in it will allow you to unlock your door but will not work with the ignition.
