Start Button

Anybody had an aftermarket Start button installed on a 2015 Camaro?

Would've saved them millions if they just put them in all their cars awhile ago.

Push button start is one less layer of security and easy prey for car thieves.
They can take your car as it is in under 3 minutes, why cut that down to 20 seconds?

I'm old school too. My GM mechanic advised against start button. My wife has new Z06 and we both kinda like Ike it. Bothe cars are manuals.

I see both sides of the coin on this one. My 14 LTZ Cruze has it, and it's a nifty little feature, but as a tech I absolutely hate it. Getting it in to the right power mode and getting it to stay there while I work on the car is a PITA. I wouldn't put an aftermarket push button in though, those are guaranteed to fail at one point or another. GM spent a lot of money on R&D and engineered it all to play together. Aftermarket designed and built it quickly and cheaply to make a profit after the fact.

Got in our suv and drove away, short time later a message pops up ... key out of range. Strange, then a few miles later I realized the key fob was still at home on the shelf near house door where car is parked. If I had gotten to the store and shut the car off no way to get it restarted. Now keep the suv key fob stored a little further away from the car. And also as the previous post mentions, getting that thing in mode I want or to roll the car without starting is a challenge to me.

Yeah, push button start is nice in that once you lock he door to your house you don't have to see your keys again until you get home. However, for the trouble and loss of reliability, not to mention security, it doesn't really make using a key that much of a p.i.a. anymore. Save your money for something that might be really useful.

I've had push button start in my SS for two years with zero issues. I never have to take my keys out of my pocket, push button on door handle to unlock, foot on brake push button to start. Good to go ... Don't need house key either, key pad to unlock.

Is it really that much of a convenience to push a button as opposed to turning a key to start your engine?
