2015 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk: Hot or Cold, You Want Remote Ignition
By James Riswick, New and Used Car Editor on September 18, 2015
Back in January, I discovered how wonderful remote ignition can be in cold weather. Well, turns out, it's pretty great in scorching hot weather as well. During our day trip in the 2015 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk to Julian, California, temperatures were pushing 100 degrees. With two dogs in tow and no rear air vents in the Renegade, I figured turning on the car early to let it cool down a bit was a good idea.
Sure, we'd be wasting gas and yada yada yada, but my general eco-friendliness elsewhere in life will surely make up for it.
Sure enough, after a few minutes, we hopped into a not oven-like car. Remote ignition really is a handy feature, be it hot or cold.
