	weird!  my 2000 has always had WAY more than 6' range.  i pretty
much get 50', actually, if not more.

	one thing the dealer told me when i bought the car, years ago.
the little sensor that picks up the signal is on the dashboard, you can
actually see it.  it helps to know it's there and point the fob at it.

	the 2006 one works better than the 2000 one, for sure.
