Is this thread for real? Now we are complaining about the "feel" of the key fob? Ugh. Lol

This is sort of like all the complaining that happened when the iphone 5 was released. "It's too light. It makes it feel cheap."

Okay...put a solid chunk of iron in there. It'll feel heavy, substantial, and expensive. It'll still be cheap...but you'll think it's expensive!

On a more serious practical note...it's light for a reason. MOST people don't like carrying around heavy objects in their pockets or on keychains.

Funny how people associate heft with expensive feel when in a lot of cases it's more expensive to make things lighter.

Also, if you own multiple vehicles, especially classic "keyed" ones, the extra hanging weight is hard on the ignition.

Re: Is anyone else a little let down by the "anemic" feel of the key fob?

Personally I love the new Fobs. They did a great job as like others, I don't need any extra weight with me during the day.

The new fob is fine. I don't even notice it. It sits in my jacket pocket. I've got bigger beefs about my SRT like poor fitting Body Moldings and Valences that are spotted with rust color.

I'm more of a FUNCTION over FORM kind of guy.

So I'm okay with how it Feels, since it Functions so well. It has excellent range and does what I feel it should for a vehicle fob.

Light is a good thing, not bad.

Can you lock the glovebox? Never looked at my 14" but my 11" did not.

If it was packaged and sold as an ultralight ergonomic design, made from unobtanium alloy, and did something goofy with an iPhone, more people would feel better about it.
