Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Comfort and convenience are causing quite the backup at car service shops across the F-M area.

Shops like Tintmasters, AutoTronics, and Auto Systems have been flooded with drivers trying to get a jump start on warming their vehicles, and if you want a remote start on your car today, prepare to wait till January to have it installed.

Tintmasters has seen a 50% increase in sales since November, and AutoTronics is on the same pace.

Auto Systems Vice President of Sales Mike Haagen says the uptick is typical at this time of year as temps go south.

Mike Haagen/VP of Sales, Auto Systems: “We've seen quite an increase this year, I think because of new car sales and also the colder weather this year so."

Remote starter kits and installation will roughly run you anywhere between $300-600.
