Default Karr Alarm System Series 3 Honda Accord

I bought this car alarm for $375 bucks. The dealer finance guy told me if I went after market it would void my warranty ( i have a feeling that is a big lie). Second thing is it even a alarm system. I here it just adds sensors to the windows. A total scheme. He claimed the cost was $345 bucks. I think he is lying. ( I realized this after i bought it and came home) He also stated if I went after market that I would not be able to use the remotes on the Honda Keys. If this is correct. Can you please give me some proper advice. Should i call them tomorrow and demand a refund. Or is $375 an ok price. I normally research before I buy stuff, but this was at the spur of the moment.

what year/model/trim do you have?

i don't know anything specific about that manufacturer.

the alarm is only as good as the installer. they are tricky and done wrong they can be a nightmare.

any aftermarket will work with your car if properly installed. alarm installs won't void a warranty if you have it professionally installed. if you DIY and mess something up then you can't expect the dealer to cover your mistake. and there is plenty to mess up when doing the alarm install.

i wouldn't pay nearly $400 for an uninstalled alarm system that has very little documentation or track record unless i knew everything it could do.

i went with Autopage, they had great documentation and their products are affordable. Directed Electronics (DEI) who owns Viper are tops in the business.

your biggest concern is installation. you should also read the manual and install manual to verify how it works and if it does what you want.
