Learning About Sourcing Auto Accessories

Hi, I'm Kate Balcome. Welcome to my site about automotive accessories. As an owner of three antique vehicles, I often run into problems sourcing original automotive accessories. I have to talk with car club communities or arrange part runs with suitable suppliers to find the pieces I need. Although I could fit a different part, it's important to keep my vehicles as original as possible. I want to use this site to help other people find the auto accessories they need for their car builds. I may discuss the process of manufacturing the parts in detail from time to time. I may also cover purchase options and methods you can use to find the best deal on these parts. I hope you will come by again soon to learn more. Thanks.

Debunking 3 Common Myths About Remote Car Starters

Have you been thinking about having a remote starter installed on your car? If so, then there's a good chance that you're tired of having to go out into the frigid cold and wait for your car to warm up as you freeze. With a remote car starter, your car can warm up without you having to step foot outside the comfort of your own home.

Unfortunately, there are a lot of myths circulating out there about remote car starters.

Myth 1: They'll Void Your Car's Warranty

One of the most commonly believed myths about automatic car starters is that they'll void the warranty on a new car. In reality, this could not be further from the truth. While some aftermarket installation or modifications to your vehicle can affect your warranty because they impact the way your car operates, a remote car starter doesn't fall into that category.

As such, remote car starters have no impact on any warranty that your car may have, whether it be a power-train or a bumper-to-bumper warranty.

Myth 2: You Need Automatic Transmission

Another myth that many people tend to believe regarding remote car starters is that, in order to have one installed, your car needs to have automatic transmission. While this may have been the case many years ago, technology has advanced enough to the point that even manual transmission vehicles these days can operate using a remote car starter.

The only difference is that manual starters have an additional function that serves to move the transmission out of gear before starting the engine.

Myth 3: They Waste Gas

Finally, many people subscribe to the misguided belief that remote car starters waste gas. After all, they leave your car sitting there running in the driveway, don't they? How could that not be wasteful? In reality, however, allowing your car to warm up for a few minutes before you drive off can actually increase your car's fuel economy. Therefore, as long as you're not leaving your car running in the driveway for hours before you head off, you're actually saving yourself fuel in the long run.

These are just a few of the truths behind the most common myths about remote car starters. If you've been on-the-fence about having one installed on your car, perhaps now you will be able to make a better informed decision about whether a car starter is right for you.
