Remote Start with AC is nice when it's 99F !

Used my remote start this afternoon, really nice getting into a cooled car. A normal key start gives me hot air when I turn on the AC, takes about a minute to get cool air. Wasn't sure if I would order it again, now I think I would !!

The most impressive part is using your smart phone and OnStar app to remote start while shutting down your PC at work, before you even walk out the door. Now that is impressive.

Winters, wife will keep the car running the full 10 minutes, and then ready to go into garage, jump in, and go. It has rubbed off onto me the past 5 years!

We have a 3 car unattached garage and opens the garage door when she is ready to walk out to it, which is 20 feet away. Summer time is the same to get the A/C going sometimes. We also have 2 louvered windows for our garage that are kept open year round.

This is a great feature! I have installed many aftermarket remote starts on my cars before and I am loving having a factory R.S. I have 1 question though- on my aftermarket units, while the car/truck was running, I could press the brake and press the start button on the remote and i was able to take the key out and it would stay running until I came back and put the key in like normal. Do we have the same function?

Can't live without it now. Nice in the winter for the heat too!

Exactly just like heated seats once you have them you always want them. I know Remote Start is on the list from now on.
