No trim has it standard, but it can be added as an accessory when purchasing vehicle. Funny you post that though, I was at the dealer last Saturday & they quoted me $609 for the remote starter & installation That's too expensive. Probably just go with an A/M one.Hello all,
Doing some research on the impreza and one of the things I'm looking at getting clarification is remote start. Which trim has it standard? It's a plus here in the southwest in the summer and nice in the winter also.
I'm sure the cost varies from dealer to dealer too, but let me know what they say. What trim are you considering?Thanks for the info. I'll have to check what they'll quote when we do a test drive. It's one of those things that you can't let go once you have it for while.
That's awesome. I'm not trying scare you away from the EyeSight system, but just so you know, if the windshield ever needs to be replaced, the EyeSight system needs to be calibrated at the dealer. Otherwise from what I hear, it's probably the best system out there.I built one from the subaru site as a basis for what we'll be looking at. 5 door premium with Eyesite, BSD, Cross Traffic with Remote Start, msrp ~$24,360
That sounds about right. I was quoted $350 for an A/M remote starter, but I'll wait until winter is closer to get it done.I have a 2010 car with remote start which was good in cold weather to warm up the interior but I haven't used it quite often since I have relocated to a warmer place. I had to pay around $300 then.
Thanks for the good info. This is interesting lol and probably annoying as you mentioned. We're dragging our feet going for a test drive as it's too dang hot out... no fun getting inside a car sitting in the lot when it's 110F outside.Keep in mind that the Subaru remote start feature will turn the engine off when you open the door.
I find this to be a bit annoying, but not the end of the world.
That is another disadvantage to bear in mind. I'd have the salesperson start the car, bring it to the door & let it idle for a few minutes with the A/C on full blast :smile2:Thanks for the good info.

wait, it always shuts the car off if you open the door? Or is that only if you don't have the fob in your pocket? if it always shuts off, regardless of if you have the fob or not, it may be a deal breaker for me.Keep in mind that the Subaru remote start feature will turn the engine off when you open the door.
It always shuts off when you open the door. That is a security feature. Its not so bad. Saying it's a deal breaker seems a bit over dramatic. I press the button before I put my seat belt on and it's started and ready to go before I can reach over and shift into gear.wait, it always shuts the car off if you open the door?

I appreciate any feedback
Are you saying your defroster doesn't turn on with the remote start? It does front and rear on mine, which has the automatic climate control stuff. My car is nice and toasty after it runs its cycle. Especially with the seat warmers on. Our previous car (Pontiac G6) would leave the seat heater off during remote starting. So this is a nice step up in pre-heating.Other thing I find annoying is because of the digital heater controls, it does not get left of max defrost. With analogue controls you could put max heat max blow and your car is toasty, now its just a small about of heat and air. Very disappointing.
