Just bought my mom a new Sonata and now she is asking for a car starter before winter comes. Since I live in NC I have lost touch with local businesses and no longer know of any trustworthy installers in the Salem/Derry/ Manchester area.

Any suggestions would be great, I prefer to support local businesses and no I will not go to Best Buy.

since it is a new car, you probably should go to the dealer. i know, you pay top dollar at a dealer. but if anything goes wrong you will not end up being a ping pong ball between the dealer(i.e. your installer caused the problem) and the installer(i.e. the car had a problem that should be fixed under warranty)

I agree with skinut74 if you are having an OM remote starter installed. If it is an aftermarket piece, I highly recommend LBP Towing and Repair on just off Rt28 on Auburn Road by the Poor Boy's Restaurant.

Definitely go with the dealer if it is a new car because of warranty. That's a lot of wiring that remote starter is cutting into. If you had any electrical problems, you'd want to have the dealer responsible for any warranty work. I had my dealer install an Astrostart 2 way and I love it.

I had one installed in a VW years back. The installed didn't know the theft systems now built into almost every car and it never worked properly. I finally had it removed and got a refund.

Bet bet is the dealer who knows the systems. Ford took the step of having a Ford unit right from the factory or available from the dealer. the nice parts is that the car is already wired for it.

also be aware that the car must be started remotely on private property. It is ILLEGAL to remotely start a car parked on the street. I found out the hard way. I was visiting in Manchester. I remotely started my car parked on Beech St. I came out to find a cop writing me a ticket for a parked car that is running without an operator inside.

That's why I won't live in Manchester. Give me a break - that cop had nothing better to do?

Anything to make a buck, the law serves no other purpose than that, it's not like the vehicle can be driven away if it's broken into.
