Remote start

So I bought the new 2012 JGC and it doesn't have the remote start. I jumped on the mopar site and I see the unit is available. My question/concern is with all the after market kits what are the pros and cons of going with a factory unit. I searched the forums and came up with 27 results of remote start issues but none addressed my concerns.

Before you ask, I will not be installing this myself. I know better lol

Re: Remote start

One nice feature of the Mopar OEM accessory remote start is that it has an 800 foot range (the factory remote start only has a 300 foot range on a good day, mine is more like 150 foot). And it comes with replacement OEM fobs that will be programmed to your GC.

If you want the feature, I would recommend getting an installed price from your dealer. Push them for at least a 10-15% discount on the part if you are having them install it, and if from the same dealer where you purchased your GC. Best luck.
