American Motors introduced the remote car starter to the marketplace in 1983. The Renault Alliance was the first production car to offer a remote starter for cars. The first wide spread availability of the car remote starter was in the GM Motors W platform in 1989. Models that included a remote starter were the Buick Regal, the Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme and the Pontiac Grand Prix. They have been gaining popularity since then, and now more features are offered than ever before.
Install a remote starter for your car yourself. It's a great upgrade, inexpensive and a project you can do yourself with simple tools and the supplied wiring diagram.
