I know the auto stop/start technology is controversial, and I want to know what everyone thinks about it. I'm personally quite skeptical of the technology and would still prefer that my vehicles didn't have stop/start. I'm always weary of new technology until it's been tested extensively by the general population and all of the possible negatives have been discovered and the bugs have been worked out. Like what happens if your battery is dead and you had to pop-start it? How does it affect vehicle reliability, and other components like the turbo and starter? I'm a huge fan of simplicity, the less stuff, especially electronic stuff, the less likely something is to go wrong 10-20 years down the road.
What do you think about auto stop/start systems?
