Kia Optima Remote Start – Winter is Coming

Kia Optima Remote Start Purchasing Guide

No matter what Kia model you own, there is a remote start to make your cold winter warm. In the evenings, when done with work, being able to get in your Kia Optima when it’s warm is a luxury.  It’s an affordable luxury, with the Kia Optima Remote Start only being $320.10 and install $110.00. You can be ready for this winter with an investment of $430.10 (before taxes).

One of the ways to increase the longevity of your Kia Optima is to allow your vehicle to warm up before you drive away. During the winter months, this is especially true. I use to think my new Kia didn’t need warming up because it was a newer model. I’m glad I did my research because I learned all vehicles need to warm up. The warming up is for the oil to get warm enough to coat the engine components and prevent them from warping and changing shape. You can read more about oil and viscosity here.

While you may think I’m writing this blog because Lawrence Kia wants to sell a Genuine Kia Remote Start for your Kia Optima, you are wrong.

We are writing this blog post to help you maintain your Kia OEM Warranty & Lawrence Kia True Lifetime Warranty. If you have a Kia Optima and it’s is covered by any warranty, you can’t use aftermarket remote starts. If you do, your remote start will become null & void. Shop around, find the best price and if you find one less expensive on the internet, call 800-988-8624 and ask to speak with the parts manager. We will price match.
