remote car starters

Some winters ago we had two couples over for dinner. After a long and pleasant evening they prepared to leave. One of them dialed a number on her cell phone and punched in some codes to start up her car parked outside. These remote starters had just come into service here.

"We did?" a surprised Faraz asked me as others looked, while his wife Sarah smiled.

Faraz is the only friend I have who does not know how to drive a car. Nahid chauffered him in Karachi and does so here in TO. "And this remote starter also cooks and makes...."
