Did Mazda do any consumer research before redesigning the New key fob? I hate it ! The old style key fob was slender and easy to get the key out if needed. The new key fob must have been designed by Russians or someone who has never driven a car !

It’s definitely ugly, cheap, buttons awkwardly placed, and it’s huge.

and when it’s time to replace the battery good luck on not cracking the case.

Wonder if Mazda will jump on the Apple Key bandwagon

the new Kia key fobs are similar with the buttons on the side. Here's their smart key fob

You could get a key-fob cover to improve it's looks and give it some protection. :D

This complaint is warranted, and the company should apologize for this mistake to all of us. I wonder if Mazda can recover from this :eek: ;)

I will forgive them if they hand deliver a redesigned, slimmer fob in a presentation case...

We're in here talking about the FOB. I mean, listen, we're talking about the FOB. Not the car. Not the car. Not the car. We're talking about the FOB. Not the car. Not the car that we go out there and enjoy driving everyday. Not the car. We're talking about the FOB, man. ;)

Lol I might of started it by asking on another post of other's have had the battery on it die prematurely .. lol interesting how people can get so caught up on one thing over the vehicle... I love my GT cx 30 and the only thing I said was that the fob reminded me of a Zippo lighter but all in all I don't mind it as honestly I hardly ever use it to unlock the vehicle and have the vehicle set to lock when I walk away.

Lol why don't we all wear it like a fashion accessory and for the people that don't "like it" get used to never taking it out or touching it button wise as that's the way it was designed to be used 99% of the time 🙂

Absolutely agree. The buttons are so much harder to use given their small size and placement and easier to set off accidentally. I also thought the previous key had a better weight to it.
