According to the Chevrolet Malibu Website, they compare different features on different models and I believe it says that Remote Start is not standard on the LS and LT1. Remote Start is Standard with the LT2 and LTZ (I have the LT2). I believe the LT1 is "Remote Start Ready", so it can be installed, but I'm not sure how. With my car, there's a button at the very top of the Key Fob with a semi-circle and an arrow at the end. It's a nice feature, but I really haven't had the opportunity to use it yet. The weather has been moderate, so I haven't had to cool or warm the interior.What's up guys? Does anyone know which remote start comes with the 2010 malibus? I just got a 1LT last weekend and the dealership seems to have lost the remote keyless entry and start contollers. My car has the Power Convinience Package and I think its an AP3 remote vehicle starter system.
The dealership is going to get me some new ones and looking at the 2010 Malibu brochures it says the regular remote start is for "LS Only" which makes me thing that the new Malibus come with the 2-Way Advanced Remote. GMaccessories.com has the regular at $156 and the 2-Way (AP3) for $120...
I am supposed to get all my an extra key made and the 2 remote starts so I want to know if I should be getting the 2-Way because I think it is cooler.
One added feature of remote start is the Key Fob has a much larger range than a non-remote start key fob. My previous car had only about a 15 foot range. Today, I was a block away and I hit the lock button and it activated. That had to be several hundred feet away.
