    Remote start

    I love Best Buy and I have done quite a bit of business here over the past few years, but when I had remote start installed on my 2011 Infiniti I got to the stop light at the Lloyd and by brakes locked up. I brought the vehicle back later that night and was told by 2 workers there it was not related to the work they did. I work at Romain Cadillac as a service advisor, and I deal with situations like this on a daily basis. If a situation seems too coincidental it usually is. The technician who fixed my vehicle at Romain informed me that the brake switch was adjusted too far in keeping the brakes engaged. My brakes were fine before it came in, and we're lock up when I got it back. Like I said I work at Romain and I myself heavily depend on surveys to keep my job, but I had to get this off my chest because I think this situation came about because the work that was done installing my remote start at Best Buy. I gave good remarks because I have never had a problem with Best Buy in the past but this situation did put a bad taste in my mouth about future business.

    Works great. My complaint--website stated 2-1/2 hours to install. It took 5 1/2, which the tech said was fairly normal. Would be nice to know that it would take most of day to have this done

    Great Product, Great Install

    I purchased the remote start system as a Christmas present for my wife, and although I'm familiar with automotive electronics, decided to have the Geek Squad install it both because they have the experience to do the job quickly and neatly, and because the remote starter ties into multiple vehicle systems. The results exceeded my expectations: the Viper remote start system works like factory original (or better) with excellent range and great security. Just as important, everything looks like factory original - almost all of the system is invisible, with the wiring neatly cabled and properly secured (I got under the dash and checked), and the only visible component, the antenna, is tucked almost invisibly above the rear-view mirror, matching both the color and layout of the mirror mount, with the wiring perfectly hidden behind the headliner. The Viper system comes with one remote; I had a second installed, which was programmed to the system at no additional charge. My wife absolutely loves both the convenience and the appearance, and looks forward to getting into a warmed and running car during the upcoming Michigan winter. I am equally pleased; in addition to my wife's reasons, I'm very happy that my gift to her was so well done and greatly appreciated. Thank you Viper, and thank you Tripp and Holland Best Buy!

    Owned for 1.5 years when reviewed.

    I have been using this for 3 years now and it works as new. Having lived in apartments and my car being parked in an open spot the "Viper - Remote Start System with Interface Module and Geek Squad Installation - Black" proved to be a blessing! I have been remote starting my car from my window for about 10 minutes (during winter), and then I have a nice warm car to drive, instead of a freezer ;) If you are looking for an acknowledgment from the computer in the car that it did start then this device will not give you that. It is only oneway communication. But who needs that when you can see the lights of your car turn on ;) Very good value for money and a must have for harsh winters.

    I installed this remote starter on a 2010 Toyota Corolla and it works great. It has fantastic reach. I turn it on from inside my house and there is no need to stand near a window. Great for the winter, I just leave the defroster and heater on the night before and when I auto start my car in the morning, it is warm and snow free. Summer, just leave the AC on the night before and you are ready to go. Best Buy had a great price with installation included. Geek Squad (Orange, CT) did a great job on the install. Looking to install this remote starter on a second car if I can get the same price again.

    These Viper remote start systems are fantastic! You can start your vehicle and let it warm up so you never have to get into a cold car. My last vehicle was 16 years old, which was the age of the remote start that was installed at Best Buy in that vehicle. It never gave me any trouble, and I'm sure this one will be just a reliable.

    I purchased this viper as a one day special for half the regular price. First I called the 800 number and patiently waited 20 minutes to find out if this model was compatible with my vehicle. I was told that this item was compatible with my vehicle and the most I would have to pay was an additional $5.00 installation charge. I made an appointment with qeeksquad to have the item installed in my vehicle. When I arrived for my appointment, I was told that there would be an additional charge of $180.00 to have the item installed. I was furious. I immediately requested a refund and had the item installed at a competitor for a price that was much less than Best Buy's.

    This is the first remote start I've used, but it works the first time, every time, also secures the car. Does just what I bought it for. Clean installation too.

    Purchased the viper 1 way remote system when it was on sale with installation. Previously had a 2 way remote system on another vehicle, will go with that next time around to verify knowing if/when the car started. Only downside is the product doesn't have a long range, and seems to only work line of sight.

    Great one way system

    Design & Size: minimalistic design that easily fits in your pocket and doesn't cause discomfort. Hold the button for a few seconds & your car starts right up. Range: quoted for 1/4 of a mile but if you work in a large structural building make sure you are near a window when attempting to start your vehicle. Installation service: I dropped my vehicle off at noon and never received a call that the install was completed. Pickup was easy even after tech had left for the day. Everything in my vehicle appears factory so it was a clean install. Overall everything went well and I would recommend the avon,in store for installation services.

    I love that I can push one button and my car starts up. Getting into a very warm car in the morning helps make my day better. It was installed by the Geek Squad and I was given instructions on how to use it. I am Impressed how easy it is to use. It shuts itself off after 20 minutes. I purchased the basic model of remote car starters and bum pleased with the results. My only complaint is that while waiting for my car to be completed, there is absolutely no place to sit and wait. Best Buy should ceeTe some kind of waiting area for people getting things installed.

    Rather happy with this purchase, but ...

    Overall, I'm rather with my purchase, but it's supposed to have an "anti-grind" feature that either doesn't work, isn't compatible with my vehicle, or simply wasn't installed by the best buy installer. As such, I have to be very conscious when turning on the vehicle after it has been remotely started. That being said, I'm very impressed with the range of the remote. It has much longer range than our Chevy equinox. The cost to upgrade to a two button remote that allows full keyless entry was minimal and I'd highly recommend it. This purchase brought joy back to my Suzuki Reno.

    It works well but when the car turns on with the remote the doors won't open with original clicker so I have to use key to open door. Should come with 2 remotes.

    I bought this as a deal package with geek squad install included but to begin with the package arrived opened and missing one of the two remotes. I was asked to purchase a second remote on my own for $25. The geek squad tech work on my car for two days but in the end the unit was not compatible with my Mazda. It was a waste of time.

    product OK, but the installation process was disappointing. arrived 10 minutes early, they didn't start working on my installation until an hour later, then it took another 3 hours after that to get the job done. installer seemed nice, but was working on other jobs while working on my installation. could have been out of there in an hour or so if the installer was focused. Waiting room was a small hallway that was not heated. outside temperature was zero, hallway was maybe 20 degrees thanks to the service window being open and the shop heat coming through the window. very disappointing process

    I purchased this item as part of a Deal of the Day package and am pleased to say it is just what I was looking for. It was a gift and a great one at that. Installation went well by local Geek Squad and the only reason it's not 5 stars is because they only provide 1 remote. You can buy a replacememt remote and have it programmed but I think 2 should be included as most cars come with at least 2 keys when new. This is exactly all you need for a simple remote start system. No extra features or complications. Just press a button and your vehicle will start.

    This Viper system suits my RAV4

    After Toyota could not readily install their remote start, I went to Best Buy and scheduled an install. This Viper system best suits my needs for my RAV4, since (after years of experience with my other cars) I need only one way and shorter range. The install technician was very knowledgable about the Viper interface to the RAV4. In fact, I did not have to give up my second key with a chip, as he was able to program the Viper to simulate the chip. Install took the good part of the afternoon. I have been using it at least twice daily for a month and am pleased to note I don't have any conflicts between the Viper and the Toyota CPU. Would definitely recommend Best Buy and Viper systems.

    Convenient, but must be patient

    Product is great, but could be better. I'm happy with being able to start my car from inside my home and let it warm up during the cold weather; but the device is only made of plastic. I'm afraid to drop it that it might break. You also need to be patient because you don't know whether to press the start button and let go immediately or hold it down for three seconds. It seems different each time. I am happy, however. It's better than running outside, starting the car, and running back inside to let it warm up. I don't have to do that anymore. This was a great investment!

    I love this product. It is so handy to be able to start my car from inside and have it all warm before I get in. I would do five stars but it wont the remote wont lock the doors though it will unlock them. It was easy to program additional remotes that do have the lock feature but its worth the little extra cost to move up the the next model which includes two remotes that both lock and unlock the doors. This version only included one remote.
