Remote Start

Good evening everyone,

Requested some information from the dealership on my "new" 2011 Jeep. Quoted me $600 for a remote start upgrade. Does this sound right? Thanks in advance.

Parts are about $250 so it's probably not too far out of line, the install is somewhat complex.

Re: Remote Start

Does anyone know if the OEM remote start added by the dealer still behaves the same way (ie. cranks the heat to full blast until the door is opened)?
