    Luxury adaptive remote start

    I thought I read one of the features of the luxury model was the remote start was adaptive to the temperature meaning it would cool the car if it was hot or heat it up with heated seats if it was cold...well I have remote started a few times and the ac never cools the car at all ..wtf>?

    Re: Luxury adaptive remote start

    You can get the car to do this. First, you do have to leave the climate control on like GJB said. But you also have to set the DO-WHATEVER-YOU-HAVE-TO-DO-TO-MAINTAIN-TARGET-TEMPERATURE setting to ON and give it your target temperature. I have forgotten the actual name of that setting, but it is in one of the option menus. I think it is in CUE.

    5-42 in manual:

    Air Conditioning Mode
    This allows selection of automatic
    start of the air conditioning upon
    vehicle start. Selecting On indicates
    the air conditioning will be on when
    the vehicle is started. Selecting Off
    turns the air conditioning off each
    time the vehicle is started. Last
    Setting will resume the last setting
    when the vehicle was shut off.
    Press MENU when Air Conditioning
    Mode is highlighted. Turn and press
    the MENU knob to select Off, On,
    or Last Setting. Press BACK to go
    back to the last menu.

    Because it forces you to adapt to reading the manual to figure it out.

    There is another setting in addition to this one. I do not recall at the moment, but can check later (if I can remember to do it).

    Ahhh. I guess that Torture package makes up for not being able to get the Track PERFORMANCE option with the Performance collection.
