    To give you at least some of the decency back. Be thankful it's a physical button, not some option deep in the menus.

    If the ac compressor were electric I wouldn’t mind, having the AC stop working while sitting in a drive thru or at a red light is annoying though

      GMs are programmed to inhibit auto start/stop while AC request is on. Can't speak for other brands

    Its an emissions control system. Much more worse than mild hybrid system.

    Doesn’t it put way more wear on the starter? When it works 40-50 times a day instead of 1-2?

        Just because they're a consumable doesn't make it acceptable. That's like replacing batts once a year because of improper charging and justifying it with "yeah but they're a consumable so technically it doesn't matter"
        Hell, why ever get a full alignment at that point? Just eyeball it in your driveway, they're a consumable after all

          Never did a northstar but Ive always liked starters under the intake - most cars its only a few bolts and some hoses and you're staring at the starter without crawling on your back or using a lift. The UR and longitudinal GR require removing the exhaust manifold and cat (!) to get to the starter.

          The UZ is actually pretty easy I've had the intake off of those for other cars and its just a matter of removing the secondary air hose (if equipped) once the mani is off and boom starters staring you in the face. BMW straight 6s are under the intake and are either really easy to get at (n54/n55/b58) or a b***h (anything n/a)

      should probably be more worried about the wear it puts on the engine. like

        They’re somehow not really bad for your engine, yes that seems counterintuitive but I’ve seen it firsthand. I took a ford escape with this all the way to 200k miles. My boss did blow the turbo on his Edge at 75k though.

          Lots of vehicles can chug a long for a long time while being abused, doesn't change the fact that it's bad for your engine.

          those and many more like it
          plus many people are more than willing to burn 0.8kg/h of fuel rather than subjecting their car to ten times as many engine starts.

          It's taken into account for the amount of start cycles the parts are designed for. Ideally at least.
          Still could last a whole lot longer if it didn't do that.

            >First Scenario
            I heard that many manufacturers disable auto stop/start when the engine is cold (or in the first few minutes of driving). Not sure if that's true, but will test it out.

            >Second scenario
            That's turbos for you lmao

            >Third scenario
            My problem with auto stop/start and parking is that whenever I brake for a split second before reverse-parking, the car turns off and on. That annoys the shit out of me.

            >It's taken into account for the amount of start cycles the parts are designed for. Ideally at least.

            Yeah don't trust manufacturers. Some manufacturers boldly claim their auto trans fluid is "lifetime," yet in small disclaimers mention that "lifetime" actually means lifetime of the warranty.

            Those scenarios were just this years forgot-to-push-button best-off.
            My Focus seems to consider 60°C coolant enough to engage it which fricking sucks.
            And lifetime fluids often act as a lifetime limiter.

            I'm pretty sure it doesn't activate until the engine is warm enough. Hell my car even has a cold indicator light when it starts, don't think I've ever noticed it stopping when that shit was on.

    I don't understand why anyone would use this shit. Every time you stop you feel a slight jolt of adrenaline when your truck starts again. Frickin stupid and useless.

    If you don't want to press the off button every time, know that you can go to the dealer and ask it to be turned off via computer access. Some will do it for free, some will ask for money, some will tell you to frick off or feign ignorance.

    Second option is buying a kit at amazon where you install behind the button, and basically what it does is remember that you pressed the button every time you turn on the car.

    Installation difficulty level: low (moderate if you're paranoid about scratching/damaging the interior)
