Does anyone have a clue on this? I am looking at the Mazda 3 brochure and it says Security System/Remote start as an option but every time I call a dealer and ask them about it they sounds like they've never heard about it. All I want to do is make sure they will install it on a 5 speed and not give me that "only on automatics" crap. Because then I have to get an aftermarket one and just don't want to hassle with it. Also if someone does know or has got one on your 3, how much did it run ya? Thanks!!!

Sorry, remote starts are MADE for automatics. No stereo shop will install it for you either.

BUT.. you can buy a remote start and install it yourself. If you leave it in gear once, and hit the remote start button..... SURPRISE SURPRISE

um, actually thats not correct. I have installed them on manuals. They are designed to be installed with autos but they can easily be installed on manuals. You simply override the clutch switch and the limiter that stops it from starting the car if it is not in park can be looped to the emergency brake. My question was is it available from factory not whether or not it is possible to which I already know. Thanks though. Can anyone answer my question.

I meant to add that MOST stereo shops won't, The one I worked for did we just would not offer a warranty on it and voided liability.

Thanks for checking, the dealer guys keeps telling me "Oh yeah sure no problem"
and then I'm like "uuuhh, ok.... well how much is it then?"
and then there like "ummm can I call you back?"
and then I'm all like "yes?"
and then there like ".........".
Pisses me off.
