As I read this thread, I'm inclined NOT to this...I'm trying to confirm: If you remote start the car (I would have the Subaru Dealer do it with Subaru Remote Starter install), you then need to turn it off, and restart with the Key? Do I have that right? BTW, I've never had a RS in any of my cars.?? I do don't have Auto Climate control, so I would have to leave the manual settings engaged on high Temps too....
The Honda system (we have a 2010 CRV w/o Remote Starter), has a cool feature if you have Auto Climate control: On the RS Fob, you can digitally set the interior Temps and the Rear electric Defroster to go on. It's mucho $$$$ thoughand we didn't opt for that.
