Good Auto Starter?

Hi,

Can anyone recommend a good auto starter brand? Something preferably under $500.

Thanks

Is it for your 2011????? I suggest having the original starter rebuilt. Should be a starter/alternator shop in your area. It will be cheaper than $500.

It could just be me (and I was wrong once back in February 1996), but I have a feeling our friend is inquiring about a remote start system.

Just a hunch.

Yes, remote starter. Winter is coming and I only have a 1 car garage. Thanks

In my experience, if there is one automotive accessory that's generally a lot more trouble than it's worth, it's a remote start system. This is due to the fact that most reasonably-priced systems are not vehicle-specific and require splicing into existing harnesses, installation of additional relays and various other potential sources of trouble.

So, if you're going to get one, be sure to get one specifically designed as a plug-and-play application for your vehicle. These are generally quite a bit more than $500.
