Vehicle: 2022 Comfortline (SE) Taos w/Sunroof Package

Hey folks,

Looking at VW's website, it indicates Remote Start Preperation for my trim level. What exactly is this? What extra part needs to be purchased for the remote start to be active? A new fob? A new relay? Is the stock key fob ready as-is?

Also, I read that we can remote start the vehicle using Car-Net. Is this possible without any additional parts, or do I need to have the same parts as above installed?

Ideally I'd just use Car-Net to remote start the vehicle without purchasing the additional parts required (if any) for Key Fob remote start...

Hopefully this is clear enough.

Cheers,

This is odd, looking at VW Canada, it looks like all of them come with the KESSY system, but only the Highline model has "remote start" listed as an option. All the others have the "prep" listed (which is probably just relay #3CN-065-760)
If you get a 4 button keyfob, you should be fine.. I know in the US they had a long range fob that you could have gotten

Right, this is exactly my thought. But then if only the 4-button fob is needed, this means remote start Car-Net would work out-of-the-door. I would be surprised if this is indeed the case as what is the incentive to get the fob while you can get Car-net for free (first 3 years, then minimal cost)?

The dealership is just as clueless as I am lol...

Our SE FWD came with a 4 button fob. Remote start works within the Car Net app as well as with the fob.
VW USA's website indeed states Remote Start as a feature on the SE model. Can someone with an S trim level model confirm whether or not remote start works for them through Car-Net? I assume the S has the 3-button fob, so if it starts with Car-Net, then this should apply the same way to the Canadian Comfortline trim level models.

Thanks,
