Who's digging the new stop and start technology in the new vehicles? I test drove a new Rubicon (never had a jeep before) and it quit running on me three times while at a stop light ... had to put it in park and restart it. Got back to the dealership and they explained the stop start feature. Confused, I read more about it later on line.
I don't like it ... neither the Jeep or the stop start feature. What's this world coming to? I'll tell my vehicle when I want it to quit running.
Every vehicle I have rented overseas for the last 10 years or so has had that feature and almost all of them had a way to cut it off. It will be on every car over here soon. As long as they put a bypass on it, no big deal.

Save .02 cents worth of gas and wear out a $500 starter motor. Works $150 battery pretty hard also.
I’m with you one hundred percent. But, it seems like all I hear about is people whining about gas mileage. There’s a thread on here right now talking about it. I don’t get it. I understand people have to somehow rank what’s important to them in a vehicle, but it’s just not that high on the list for me. Bunch of danged future Prius drivers on here is what we have.
