I have a 2011 Kia Sorento with the 3.5 V6. It is loaded, and has remote start.
This is not the Smart Key system. It works fine if you are within 100 feet of the car. Both my remotes have poor range. I changed the batteries in both remotes. There was no improvement. The dealer laughs and claims it within specification. They can't show me the specification. In my opinion it is worthless.
I have owned other cars with remote start. I could start the cars from inside my house, and in some cases, from inside a store. Totally useful in my area, Florida.

See if you can add a module that allows you to use your smartphone and an app to start up. You can start it from any distance then!
