Wow. After more than 13 years, my GM car is on the same battery for its remote transmitter. Of course, my car needs a key to start, so the transmitter only uses juice when I press the button to unlock or lock the doors. I take it your Maxima runs without using a key, so the transmitter must be talking a lot more. I'm not sure if this is an improvement. Pushbutton start seems like a solution to a non-existent problem. I've seen stories about thieves cloning the transmitter data in order to steal a car. And there are stories about people who don't know how to turn the car off when it's accelerating out of control. Some of these incidents have resulted in fatal crashes.
