    Automatic Car starters

    Does anyone have one? If so, can you give me the pros and cons?

    Thanks

    there aren't any cons as far as i can see

    pros - warm your car up before u get in so u don't have to freeze ur cooch off in the winter

    Yeah that was my thought but then a friend told me something about a guy in the dealership telling her to not get it because it affects something in your car. What any of those somthings are I doh know because that was the entire convo.

    Lightbulb

    We have one on one of the cars...it's great...I can turn on the car so it is cool by the time I get in...roll down the windows...depending on the car you can use it to pop the doors (or trunk) also, which is what we needed for the chevy because the door handles are shaved off...but because of how heavy those doors are, I was told it would not make sense because the door pops will continue to break...that is the only con I can tell you...everything else is great...

    make sure that the install is professionally done
    the car starters turn off after 10-15 min
    also, if you have it integrated with your factory remote or your aftermarket alarm remote, make sure that when you use the car starter, that this does not cause the alarm to be engaged.

    only con is if you have a 5 speed make sure you don't leave the car in gear.

    Wasn't aware that they could work with a manual transmission...seeing how the clutch must be depressed to start the engine and all. You learn something new...

    it can warm up your car in the winter, but it has a tendency to cause cars to not start

    you have to figure out how to integrate those 2 remotes into 1 first before you get a third!

    question: if you have a new car that is still under warranty and you put the automatic starter even though it has it's factory alarm would that null the warranty?
