asked by on

Ive been reading alot of different things. Some people say it will be fine. Some say it will only work temporarily. Some say it has to be brought to a dealership. I just want an answer from a trusted source

My car has 200000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

You should be able to do it as long as it is installed professionally. I would recommend having it installed either at the dealership or at a car audio place that specializes in installing these.
