Agree 100%

I can't believe so many people consider dealing with a key to be an actual hardship these days

Some people have to complain about everything no matter how trivial it is theses are the ones you can’t make happy regardless of what you do. Some people just can’t move on and accept the way things are now all their complaining will get them nowhere by the way.

One of our key fobs for a '14 Rogue started 'dying' in about a year. Changing batteries would help for a couple weeks. It finally died altogether a few days before trading it in. Even with a dead battery, holding the fob against the start button worked. But it was irritating. No problem with the other fob.

I hate this option and just want a good ol' key with the standard ignition where you have to insert a key and manually start it.

Wondering how much (roughly) this would cost to swap it all out? My fear is being out in the middle of nowhere and this keyless starter decides not to work.
Why don't you just take it back to the dealer and tell them to fix it? I've used my keyless system in my Versa since buying it in 2011 and the only problem I have ever had was when the battery went dead. Nissan has great customer service in my experience. I would give them a chance to make this right.

Harder to lose something you aren't always pulling out of your pocket or purse.
