California Car Sounds and Tint in Campbell, California, would like to share five reasons why it might not be wise to buy a cheap remote starter. Sometimes the allure of a great deal distracts customers from the importance of using quality products. This article will help clarify some of the benefits of our solutions.
Parking Has Become a Premium
With high-density housing and shopping centers becoming more and more popular, convenient parking at home and at work has become increasingly precious. Most employee parking lots are around the back of the building or around the corner. This leads us to our first point, range. Cheap remote starters often have poor range. When purchasing a remote starter, think of all the places you park or would want to use your remote starter. Make sure you pick a system that has the range to work in those conditions.
Your Car is Just a Big Computer
Let’s face it, most cars built since 2000 have several computers or body control modules (BCM). If the salesperson uses words like bypass or hotwire while discussing your project, maybe they do not fully understand today’s automobiles. Only use quality manufacturers that use the latest technology to seamlessly integrate into today’s vehicles. The newest remote starters have the ability to talk with your car’s computer, not work around it.
Not Buying a Remote Start with Correct Features for Your Application
Does your vehicle have a sliding door, a motorized tailgate or power trunk release button? These are features you use every day. What if you purchase a remote starter that can’t control these accessories? Many people choose to focus on price when buying a remote starter and do not consider all of the features they want. A remote starter should enhance your vehicle, not take away any features.
Buying Ford Parts and Asking the Chevrolet Dealer to Install Them
We pride ourselves in our long-standing relationships with our remote starter suppliers. If your car has a unique feature or your vehicle is brand new to the market, we have an open line of communication with the manufacturer. The brands we carry offer this direct support, even though this might not be something you have considered. As new cars are developed, we ensure that our products integrate seamlessly with your vehicle.
Buying your starter from the shop that will install it is strongly recommended. In our case, our team of technicians is familiar with the wire colors and programming procedures for the products we sell. While they have the skills to install anything on the market, they will need to spend time looking up information and procedures. If we run into an issue with a component, our extensive inventory allows us to swap the product without affecting your project delivery. If you bring us something defective, it has to go back to the wherever you bought it for repair or replacement. Cheap remote starters often end up costing more in the long run.
