When I bought my 2012 I had the dealer install remote start for me at only $200 dollars. I know it usually costs a lot more for the dealer to install, but they did it cheaper for me because the car I chose did not have the winter package which I wanted.
I do not have push button start but I know it can be dealer installed with this anyway.
Remote Start IS AWESOME. It is so nice to enter a warm car with a defrosted windshield without having to sit inside while it is still cold and wait for the heat and defrost to kick in. Another benefit is when sometimes the doors are frozen shut, If you have remote start with your heater set to go on, it helps warm up the car and melt the ice before you try to open the door.
I highly recommend remote start, you won't regret it.
