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

It feels hollow and way too light, like an empty match box.

Actually with the keyless start, the auto door unlock, the ability to lock the door with the outside button and the remote start android app I never take it out of my pocket. I would prefer it to be even smaller than it is due to the above mentioned items.

I agree. I have my entire house, garage and shed keyed alike. So I carry one key and the fob. Less is better.

It just feels so cheap. The fob for my mother's mazda CX5 feels more solid and is smaller.

Cool option to give it more weight.

The lighter the better. As long as it works, I'm ok with it.

Lol at the snickers, I'm in the lighter and smaller the better camp, mine only comes out of the pocket to lock or unlock the house

I'm curious. Do many people lock their glove boxes. I never have, just because I never thought about it. Maybe I should, since in the hot weather I usually leave my windows open.

Yes, I can top that. I have my entire house, garage, shop and shed on combination dead bolts. One fob, no keys; even less is even mo' better.
