Urgent! Locked Key in Car! Need help!

Ok guys, my fiance locked her keys in her 08' Camry. I can't find the spare. Do you know of any ways to gain access to the vehicle without damaging it, The windows are all rolled up and the sunroof is closed...

I do not want to leave it where it is at because the keys are in plain view on the seat at a busy shopping center...

Any ideas, quickly, don't want to have to spend money on a lock smith if at all possible.

TIA!

I'm not sure how to get in yourself without damaging the car. I don't know if this helps, but if you have a friend/family member with AAA they can call and all they have to do is be present when the AAA guy comes to sign off on the service call to unlock the car. No charge for anyone, though it does count as one service call obviously.

We bought it used and cancelled the extended warranty last week because it is certified by Toyota and we were forced into the warranty by the stealership to begin with....but that is a whole other story. Nobody we know has AAA, looks like we will be paying $$$$ to get a locksmith, unless she by some miracle can find the key when she gets off work...But I sure as heck couldn't find it in her room while I was looking...

LOL you people are way too cautious. I would have busted one of the rear side windows within 1 minute of realizing that I locked my keys in.

She locks the door with the button on the door and then gets out...

And why is she using the buttons on the inside and not the lock/unlock button on the keyfob? Theres a reason why its on the key.

If you break a window....dont bust the little tiny rear one. Those are the most expensive according to a buddy of mine who busted his out.

Ah, so you confirmed this for me. I had always suspected this and that's why I always made up my mind to bust the "big" rear side window and not the little one. Thanks for confirming this.

Often people are in a rush and not everybody subscribes to the AAA. I sure don't. The CAA (Canadian equivalent) is extremely expensive for what you get and it is based on protecting a DRIVER and not a CAR. Therefore, if one of my relatives drive my car, technically they are not covered because it would be only my name on the contract.

I just pay Toyota Canada $80 per year to extend the factory roadside assistance. Abrams Towing is sub-contracted here in Ontario - they're a good tow company used by Benz and BMW too. This way, if my dad is driving my car, he's equally covered since it is the CAR that's covered and not the person.
