My old starters had 20 minute timers that you could set a few times over. This makes a huge difference when you have a layer of ice and snow and the wind chill is -10. I hope an update is in the future to extend it, but I have already started to look at after market starters.
Glad I am not the only one, And sometimes when I go to extend the run time, it shuts the car off instead of extending it. Which I dont know its done that til I go out to a cold car. This morning it had run 10 min and shut off, so I went to start it remotely again and it would not do it, even standing next to the darn car. The remote start on my Crosstour (was an aftermarket and the first I'd ever had) had excellent range, did not make me lock the doors before it started the car, and it ran for 20 minutes, allowed me to program it to start the car the same time every day for the 20 minute run time, it was really good. I'm not diggin this one that came with my Touring, though I will say its better than not having one. Clearly not designed by someone who lives in a climate with cold winters.
