  19. Push Button Start and Smart Key

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    I searched this and couldn't really find an answer. If you go to the Kia website and configure a 2011 Soul, you have the option for push button start and the smart key. Is this something we can get installed into a 2010? If anyone knows, it will save me a trip/call to the dealer. Thanks.
