It is just like new for a fraction of the price of a new key fob and i enjoy these kinds of projects they are rewarding in their own way worked great for my 2015 chevy volt. I was able to program it myself by following the instructions. In my car manual works as good as the original. I got this for my 2013 chevy volt with the proximity door locks and push to start all functions work. As my original does. The only differences i can tell is no chevy symbol. The key flip button sticks out further and the key flips out with more force, maybe due to wear on the original. You do not need to get the key cut to use the electronic functions for the 2013 Volt. The key needs to cut only to open the doors when the car has no power Music. I was concerned about this because in the description it states it does not work with cars with smart keys, great value. When i may purchase more, the fob came with a card directing me to a website for programming, Men, that website no longer sold the fob for a 2014 volt and had no programming instructions.
