It appears to be the same key fob as the Mazda 5 with a Ford logo stuck on instead. Probably just a joint cost cutting venture between the two companies.

My 2006 Mazda5 has a very similar fob (except with Mazda logo and the blade is rotated 90 degrees and without trunk release button). Six model years later, I'm stuck with a key that's too long and awkward for a pants pocket. WTF Ford?

the unit feels pretty stable...you can twist it slightly when the key is out.
