I don't have remote start but the last few days at work I wish I had it. I wouldn't use it at home because I park in the garage, but I wouldn't feel comfortable using it at a mall, for example, even though I'm sure it's quite secure. Just the thought of it out there running by itself in the middle of a parking lot. I wonder how often those of you who have it use it, and when? And does it really warm up in the little bit of time it's running before you get in or are the seats just warm? I am considering getting an after market remote start installed, if I don't have to put any ugly switches on the dash or anything.. Also, has anyone installed after market heat for the rear seats? I have a friend who is a certified master mechanic who teaches at the local college, who installed a heater in his wife's old Explorer (driver's seat). Works great. I'd like to put those in the second row seats.
