I know some people who have remote keys for their vehicles and they will start their cars before they even walk outside in the morning
There are a lot of factors to mull when you’re buying a preowned car, regardless of where you get it—a dealer or a private sale. You have to compromise on something, whether it’s the cost or the condition of the car. If you compromise on condition, will it be the engine or something else? I’m fine with a worn interior if I’m not worried that I’ll be at the mechanic once a month fixing one issue after the next. I won’t compromise on the engine, the transmission, or the air conditioner and heater. The heating and cooling system in a car is extremely important if you do a lot of driving in a state that experiences intense hot or cold temperatures. Since I live in Indiana, we get a mix of both. The worst heat waves this year saw temperatures rise to 107 degrees in Evansville, and last year’s low was -30 degrees in February. Although I could survive without an air conditioner in my car in the summer if I can keep the windows down at all times, I simply cannot drive a car that doesn’t have sufficient heating inside. The winters get really cold in Evansville, with snowfall beginning in October or November every year. I know some people who have remote keys for their vehicles and they will start their cars before they even walk outside in the morning. This gets the engine to unfreeze while pumping heat into the car’s interior. It’s amazing how some cars these days come with heating and cooling systems that have digital thermostat controls on them. You can adjust to specific temperatures by single digit degrees with a car thermostat like this.
