Auto start

I understand the auto start feature the you get in the US is not allowed on UK versions. Does anyone know if it's possible to have one retro fitted in the UK

Autostart? Are you referring to the remote start from the keyfob or the remote start app on your phone?

aftermarket remote start kits are pretty affordable for any vehicle , but not sure if they have versions where you can start it with your phone app yet

wonder why the uk versions dont have that as an option? they dont get front towhooks, but eu models get the cool headlight washers tho

Key fob is what I was referring to. The dealer says they are not allowed in the UK. Something to do with radio wave regulations.

Looking at the UK Jeep site it promotes Keyless Enter'n Go - which I think is the Key Fob - but it may not have Remote Starting whereby you can start the car while you are still in the pub (not that you would be in the pub).

Every absurdity has a champion to defend it.

Yep it means I can get into the car and start the engine without taking keys out of my pocket.

we also dont have the "panic" button in the UK.

Regarding the autostart - i would guess you can retrofit, providing you have the 9speed automatic, i looked, but fell at the first hurdle (i have the manual gearbox).

Apparently it is illegal to leave a running car untended in the UK

When has that ever stopped anyone doing anything? Seriously, it would be nice to retrofit it, even if just for 'off road use on private land'

I would use it to warm the car in winter or cool the car in summer. I agree with you.
