What’s the deal with starters?


Wondering about automatic starters for my Toyota Corolla.  One mechanic says they are another device that will fail and others seem to be pushing them.  What’s your take on safety etc.

Batteries have to work a lot harder when starting a car in frigid temps. A starter can assist your car’s battery in getting the job done for those who live in cold climates.

They can be helpful, and I haven’t heard of any safety issues with them.
