Kia Sorento Remote Start Purchasing Guide

If you don’t have a remote start for your Kia Sorento, here is everything you need to know to purchase a remote start.

There is nothing like a remote start for a vehicle. If you’ve lived in a cold climate, you can relate to sitting in a freezing car shivering while your car warms up. And if you are like me, you may believe your new vehicle doesn’t need warming up see here

What I’ve learned in my remote start research is purchasing and installing an aftermarket remote start can negate your Kia Warranty. If you bought your vehicle from Lawrence Kia, it would negate your Kia Lifetime Warranty. This post will only cover Genuine Kia Parts.

The first thing to know is there are two type of remote starts for the Kia Sorento; one for a key start model and one for the push button start model. Installation for these parts at Lawrence Kia is $110. If you are not using Lawrence Kia, please shop around for a reasonable price. I’ve seen install prices range from $110-$1,000. Whoever does do the install, make sure this person an ASE Certified Technician. Using a certified ASE Technician is required to keep your warranty.
