I know the 2008's have a range of 200 feet. Do the old style key FOB with the 2007 and prior have the 200 foot range also?

I have an 07 and I guess depending on the terrain and atmospheric conditions, I have had some success beyond 200ft

I had my wife's 2007 on a road trip lasy week and was able to remote start the car from about 250 feet away ( & third floor motel room) consistently. I'll have my 2006 this week and will post the results.

Yep, about 200' on my 2005.

I have found with most remotes that if you hold it to just under your chin and use it that your body makes the signal better. Try that. Also if you live where it gets cold say 10 or below it won't work near as well.

Both our 2006 & 2007 old style remotes are reliable at 250'. I haven't tried farther, yet.
