The ad showed a kid dressed up as Darth Vadar trying to muster up his super powers. Dad helps out by secretly remote starting the car. It only takes a minute to watch.
The VW Passat gets remote start for the first time on the 2012 model that also offers a Fender-branded premium audio system. The Fender system was jointly developed with Panasonic and has 9 speakers.
Remote start is available on select Passat trim lines for models with automatic transmission.
