Default New Key Fob alternative?

2006 Impreza.

My wife's key fob is starting to fail - apparently there is some corrosion inside, the battery is fine. The criminals at the dealer want $190.00 + tax for one! Are there any aftermarket alternatives?

Could get a remote start system or alarm system installed. They usually come with a high range key fob. Probably not going to save any money but at least then you will get some extra functionality and range.

What is failing on the remote? Does one button not work? Does it only work if you are up close?

If you know how to open the remote, you can usually clean the corrosion,
If one of the buttons doesn't work, I have had luck gluing in back on.
If it's just not working, then you probably need a new one

You may also try subarugenuineparts.com and see what their online prices are, usually better than most walk-in dealership customers.
