the 30 ft range for the remote key system isn't enough for me, kind of sad when aftermarket companies offer more range than this.

It is true. I never understood why the fobs that come with it are so weak

I wonder if its due to battery life.

Because the aftermarket fobs use batterys fast.

if battery life is the issue, that would be a bad reason to limit it.
But I know it has more to do with the receiving and sending units, maybe it will cost too much for them to include anything better? or at least anything significantly better?

But really why do you need the fob to have a range of miles? More than 30ft would be nice but I don't need it to be communicating with satellites.

Do you like the new welcome feature on the MKC? With the light welcome mat.

It's nice to have it at a much longer range as it helps if you want to start your car in the winter minutes before going in.

Starting the car from a distance is nice for the winter, but I remember the days when there was no remote lock. It doesn't bother me that much that the range is what it is. It is an upgrade they can make over time to make ti have greater range.

@st.who I think those light mats are just a gimmick. Do I really care if a light square appears on the ground when I enter my car? Not really.

now that we have the option for it and the tech, it's hard to pass up on it.
I think remote start is a must, it beats going into a really cold car and having to wait for it to warm up before moving

having the longer range is useful

if you parked far and by the time you get to the mall entrance you aren't sure if you locked the car.

Ive also never seen 2 way alarm and remotes from the factory

yet the aftermarket has this solved so well.
