What's up everyone? I'm new here. I just picked up my '11 Sonata Limited today and along with the deal I got, the dealer was having a special that includes a free car starter. I have not gotten it installed yet, so I'm wondering if anyone has any input on how it works, good or bad? I'm new to the push button start and I wonder if that will start problems with the remote starter.

If anyone knows, please respond asap. Thank you.

Can't wait to take this on a trip and see how the gas mileage is compared to the Grand Cherokee I traded in.

If they dealer is providing the Hyundai unit it will just plug and play and work perfectly fine. From what I hear you will get a seperate fob for the remote start so you will end up with 2 fobs total. (1 for starter and the smart key). Range I heard was 1000 or 2000 feet, so not the most advance unit but will be fine for most people.

I went with a aftermarket unit with a 5000 feet range and it intetgrated into the car nicely. 1 fob for starter and one for smart key still. From what I noticed with mine is when you remote start it, the remote start totally overrides the proximitry setup, meaning the little button on the door doesn't work at all. Once I shut down the car it gives control back to the proximitry setup. Not sure if the factory one will have the same problem or not though.

It's not going to be a dealer installed starter. Theyre giving me a gift certificate for a local installer. Just nervous if this will affect my warranty.
