For us northerners, a remote start is a must on a morning where it is -35 with the windchill. I just bought the Honda remote starter. Cost me an arm and a leg. I was told that I could only put the Honda one in, no aftermarket because of computer issues. Jerks! Beware of sketchy sales pitches. AFtermarkets are apparently fine. As for the starter, I am not impressed. You start the vehicle, but as you approach the car and unlock, it engine shuts off. What is the point of starting it? I had a starter on my 04 Accord and it stayed running when you unlocked it, but shut off if you touched the pedal before inserting the key. Will this be bad for the starter in the long run? I phoned Honda Canada, but all I got was the"it's a safety feature" explanation with no real explanation on how it will keep me safe. FYI for everyone considering a remote.
