    '14 Mazda3: owned 5 yrs
    '16 Mazda6: owned 3 yrs
    '17 CX5: owned 2 yrs.

    If I were you, I would call MazdaUSA corporate phone line, and plead the case.

    In an open parking lot, the fob has an effective range of at least 50 ft using the button.
    I sometimes use the button to locate my car at night and light up the interior.

    That's why they are moving Mazda6 to RWD with bigger engine to find a niche in the market.
