Is it possible to add remote start to a Saturn Vue XR if it did not come w/ it from the factory?
Check with a local dealer to see what they have to offer. It is possible. While I have never done a factory remote start after the sale, I have had customers install aftermarket remote starts and have no problems.

Thanks! I havent had much luck w/ aftermarket in the past, so was wanting factory, that way it will work w/ the heated seats and climate control. Maybe I'll just have my parts dept order the parts and see if they'll work.
Your dealer should be able to check if a factory kit is available, they mostly consist of new remotes and a re-flash of several modules, that is the real cost, upgrading the vehicles software.

Check your RPO list to see if your car has the AP-8 code.
That is the code for 07 and up GM trucks, Malibu and possibly
yours that will accept the GM remote start kit and reprogram.
It can be done safely, but it has to be an excellent shop. I thought I went to one - had been in business for 5 years, great reviews etc. They were gone when I needed them and I ate the repair bill for their mistake. None of the wiring is meant to be messed with.
You should get a kickback/spiff/six-pack for referrals to your service dept - and that's where it should be done, under Goodwrench warranty and support - not Best Buy with a bunch of punks tearing into the dash
