    Auto Start-Stop

    Not a big fan of this at all. On my other car, I have the auto start-stop and it could be defeated by pressing a button then all subsequent restarts, the last saved selection will carry through. Is this a permanent start-stop? If it is, that could be a deal breaker.

    Why, specifically, do you not like it. From all the reviews I've been reading, it's one of the smoothest ones yet.

    Just the general nature of a start/stop vehicle. Total wear on the components for one, and just for me, I don't trust the reliability of the system.

    I don't notice it at all 90% of the time. Otherwise, I can semi-defeat it by leaving the fan on low with the A/C button pressed, or by letting up on the break just a bit after a stop, before the car turns off. It's annoying in stop-n-go traffic.

    I also have no interest in it at all. I don't want a big battery in the trunk, and I don't want whatever additional circuitry, wiring and crazy starter motor it requires. Just more things to go wrong and then the crappy dealers to say they can't duplicate.

    I'm quite sure that's the only battery. If the vehicle has a second battery for the stop/start, it's very small - a'la the E-Assist cars.

    My Cobalt has the battery in the trunk - and I much prefer it back there. Easier to remove if needed, and far easier to power an amplifier. Better weight distribution anyway.

    And from GM's press release:

    Stop/start technology is paired with the automatic transmission and contributes to efficiency in stop-and-go driving.

    One other feature was well on display here, too: the stop/start system. Chevrolet made a bold move by not allowing the driver to shut the system off. It’s always on. Always. The good? It’s one of the better systems out there, and it’s doing great things for fuel economy. The bad? It’s still pretty rigid occasionally, shaking the car to life from time to time. Chevrolet has struck a good balance when it’s activated, though. For example, when sitting at a stoplight, the engine will be off. If the driver creeps forward, the car comes to life again and stays that way. It does not shut off again. It helps the system feel less intrusive, and frankly, less annoying.

    There is a lot of misconception about the current auto-stop start systems not only on this thread, but the forum as a whole. Auto-stop start is one of those things you will have to learn to live with if you plan on buying a new car, because all major auto manufacturers are committed to the technology. GM has been using its current iteration of the system since the 2014 model year, and it is one of those things you never see issues with. Auto-stop start should be one of those mechanical systems you should worry the least about compared to the other complicated systems in these new vehicles. The current GM system uses a specially designed and manufactured starter to start the car, the system also keeps the transmission pump running to circulate the fluids in the transmission. I have not had a chance to review the tech docs concerning the second generation Cruze, but some of the systems have 2 batteries, one to keep the electrical system running when the motor is off, and another to start the car. I do not know if the Cruze does, I can get back to you on that. eAssist was a mild hybrid system, completely different then the current stop-start technology which is just a specially designed starter motor and some other minor changes.

    This happens a lot. People inherently fear the new and unknown.
