How much? When the dealer said "maybe (as they were not sure) and then said it was about 600, I declined.

This is a nice thing to have in the car but not at that price. Maybe $200 I would do it.

Goodbye 2011 Sonata SE. RIP. You were a good car. Thanks for the memories.

I would love to have it as my MR2 occupies the Sonata slot and the wife get the other in the garage. So the Sonata sits outside. However 600 is a ridiculous amount to expect to pay for remote start. The Fusion is 345. Only reason I mention that is its a direct competitor and pricing is almost half.

Been available in the Canadian market for about 2 months now on both push start and non push start version. The dealer had the non push start one that we opended up and looked at. You get a new key fob that replaces the old one and has all buttons including one for the remote start. Wanted to see a push start one to see how that works. I don't want to have to carry around the smart key and then a additional remote start fob too.

Pricing was about $800 Canadian installed which is too much. I'm going to go aftermarket with Compustar and maybe even get their dronemobile setup where you can control everything through your iphone, Android or Blackberry device. Think a Compustar setup with droinmobile installed will run about $800 but compared to the basic Hyundai system you get so much more. Big plus here is you don't have to worry about range at all, as long as you have cell phone coverage your good to start your car. Also can track your car via GPS if someone stole it too. If you get car jacked, let them take off and then you can shut the car down via your phone, lock the doors and then then set off the alarm, or call the cops and they can track it via the GPS like onstar.

The only advanatage of the Hyundai system is full factory warranty and support. I've heard of people who got remote starts installed but unqualified techs and it messed up the car's electrical system. In that case Hyundai will not warranty any repairs to fix it. Where if there was a problem with the Hyundai remote start unit they will warranty everything.

FYI the Hyundai unit for Canada is pretty much the mid level remote start found instores. Think it was made by Autostart

Keep in mind that with a car like the Hyundai, you cant just get any run of the mill remote start system at your local Best Buy and have it installed.

The proximity key/push button start adds a whole new dimension to the complexity of installing such a system. Thats not to say that there arent systems out there that will work, or people qualified who can do it, but all Im saying is not to compare the installation of a remote start on these cars to a run of the mill install on an older car.

$600 might seem like a lot, but for a Hyundai system specifically designed for use on these cars installed by a dealer who would warrant and troubleshoot any issues isnt really that bad.

Exactly, I'm still waiting on a bypass that will work with compustar. Viper has a bypass but not a fan of there units. For non smart key people aftermarket at a reputable installer might be the best bet. By not sure about other city but grrrrr we got a few chain sites with great installers but also a huge selection if specialty shops. So finding a installer who knows what they are doing is not a problem. Well not trust my car to best buy or future shop that's for sure.

Im booked in for a tuesday install of a compustar unit. $650 installed for the top of the line unit with one mile range and two way remote. Or for the same price can get the drone mobile version, will have ti decide on the weekend.

So the installer says that if you have push start abd want to keep the proximity feature on the door your pretty much limited to remote start only and will have to use the factory alarm. I will need to carry two fobs. The hyundai proximitry key and the compustar remote. They can't integrate it into the factory key yet like with mercedes cars.

Installed an Avital in my Sonata with no bypass (GLS, no push button). Works like a charm!

If you need any help/wiring info let me know.
