Toyota Venza Remote Engine Start
I purchased a 2010 4-cyl FWD Venza last week, with only the Smart Key and Leather packages. It did not come with the Remote Engine Start and I'm thinking about having that added either by Toyota or a 3rd party. I live in Florida so I'm interested in it for cooling the car before I get in, not for warming it.
Does anybody have experience with RES on the Venza? If so, does it also roll down the windows or does it just start the engine? What happens with the Smart Key - does the engine quit when I touch the door handle to unlock the car? And about how far away can I be from the car and start it with the RES?
I know I can talk to salespeople about this at Toyota or a 3rd party place, but I'd like to hear from somebody with real life experience if possible.
