I've seen too many shoddy after-market remote starters/alarm systems installations: from cars starting for no reason ( which I personally experienced on my '01 Legacy when my neighbor called me to say my car was running ... and no, the remotes were all hanging on key hooks) to electrical fires, to alarm systems activated out of nowhere.
After spending half my life running from Subaru dealer and local system retailer, each blaming one another, I finally disconnected it when, according to the latter the "computer" needed replacement ( warranty expired ... cost 160$+).
I just had the Subaru remote starter installed last week on my '07 Outback ( 449$ + 101.50$ installation + tax); yes, you might say expensive and I could've installed it myself but this is like car insurance, you will probably never need the protection but the peace of mind is well worth the expense.
At the very least, it would be a one stop visit should it malfunction.
