Unhappy Key fob wireless range is abysmally low?

Never realized this before due to the comfort entry feature, but the other day I tried to unlock the car remotely using my key fob and it would not work. Realized that I needed to come as close as about 20-30 feet for it to work.

Also, panic mode is barely useful while trying to find your car in a busy parking lot since you got to be really close to the car for the alarm to go off.

With all my previous cars the key fob had a range of at least 100 to 150 feet.

Not sure if the key fobs are defective. Do you'll have the same observations too?
