    Guess I'm just a speed shifter, never had this problem.

    I have a 2017 LT with only 3300 mi and the auto S/S and it annoys me to death.
    I'm 53 and quite mechanically inclined and because of that I'm aware of the additional wear and tear on the starting/charging system.
    So where can I purchase the "module" you mention?
    Does using the module affect the warranty?

    I would like to ask a related quesiton about shutting down this diesel engine. Is it recommended to let the engine idle for a few seconds before shuttting it down? This would be mainly for the benefit of the turbocharger.

    Put it in L mode when you get into a parking lot, I don’t think it will stop the engine in L mode but don’t quote me on that...

    The Auto S/S is extremely dangerous for me so I can put it in L9 all the time every time. Trying to get into traffic from a parking lot or side street on an super busy road is dangerous with Auto S/S, the lag is ridiculous for me at least.

    Maybe there is something wrong with your vehicle? Mine starts up so fast after taking my foot off the brake that by the time my foot get to the gas pedal its ready to go.

    I have learned to maximize the amount of time the engine is off at a light, I make sure not to leave much space between me and the car in front because they will usually creep up a little, and make sure not to let off the brake until the light turns green.

    The amount of extra wear on the engine does concern me but with modern oil I doubt it will make much of a difference in the long run. As for the starting and charging systems, from what I have read they were built to able to withstand that so we will see, if starters need replacing too soon then they didnt do a very good job of redesigning them.
