scenic key card fault

scenic display telling me 'card not detected' i had to have the car towed to my nearest renault garage. They have since informed me that the card is faulty, and it will take 7-10 days for a replacement card at a cost of 125. When i asked the women working at ranault what was wrong with the card, and i stated that cards should not fail, she said the car is over 3 years old and that is why people sell cars after 3 years, because things start to go wrong. That does not say much for renault in general, if an employee is trying to justify the repair of a none wear and tear item, with the comment the car is over 3 years old. Have only just had the dash replaced 4 weeks ago, these cars are a nightmare electronically, will be taking it up with renault customer services , making a point to mention this employees comments.

I bet they'll want to replace the keycard reader next.
In my experience of the keycard not being detected is down to a dirty or faulty micro-switch in the keycard reader itself.
