Are you a recent EV buyer (past 3 months) as a result of manufacturer incentives and dealer discounts on these vehicles, including year-end deals? Were you convinced to buy an EV after finding a good end-of-year deal, or due to uncertainty around which EVs will no longer qualify for full/partial EV tax credits in 2024?

2011 Hyundai Santa Fe Limited dealer-installed remote start problem
My wife had a Hyundai remote start installed on her new 2011 Santa Fe Limited. I recently asked her why she never seems to use it and she said it does not turn on heat or air when you remote start until you turn the key in the ignition switch. The manual says it will pre-heat or pre-cool depending on how you left controls when you exited the vehicle. Took back to dealer and the service manager says it will not work with the automatic climate control system. I don't understand why they sold it if that is the issue as temperature control would be the only reason for the auto start. When I call Hyundai customer service they don't know but basically tell me that the service manager is always right. Anyone have any experience with this remote start?
