These fobs are exactly like the originals for my 2011 Chevy Malibu. The plastic is the same quality and they have the rubber water seal. Both of my original fobs started to go bad. At first I had to push the buttons harder and longer to get them to work, until some of the buttons stopped working completely. Since some of the buttons still worked, I figured it wasn't a battery issue, but I tried new batteries anyway. No luck. So, I bought these replacement fobs and attempted to do what I read in another review. I put my original fob mother boards in the replacement fobs. This would allow my new fobs to work without needing costly reprogramming. Worked like a charm! All buttons on both fobs work with an easy press, just like new. 2 like-new working fobs for only $15!! Obviously you would need to pay for programming if you were replacing a missing fob, but if the buttons start to wear out try this fix!
