    Auto Stop/Start in 2018 models

    Hello everyone,

    Not sure if this has been asked before; does anyone know if the 2018 models have a switch to turn off the auto stop/start feature?

    Thanks,
    H.

    Yes, put it in Manual mode, and shift it up to 6th. It's been there since 16's came out.


    Seriously, there probably isn't a switch or button.

    There is not a switch, no.

    The 2018 Equinox loaner we have right now has it, I see no reason to ever turn it off. I actually got upset when it wouldn't stop while we were at a light, but that may have been because we had the air on full blast. Rolled down the windows so it wouldn't have any trouble stopping the engine.

    Toyota/Honda have this "useless" feature on other vehicles as well (Pilot, Odyssey, Highlander)

    People buy the Corolla because they're sheep and the Civic because the auto reviewers love it.

    The only issue with auto start/stop is when it breaks, which I honestly have yet to see. It's extremely seamless and most reviewers praise the chevys for doing such a good job with it. The only con to it is the possible slight thud that it may produce, but I never experienced this and I drive like a bat outta **** trying to improve my green light reaction time, and it needing to start back up didn't slow me down in the least, and this was in a Chevy from 2014..

    Thats because you have a manual. I couldn't stand it. Its intrusive, to me. I roll into the garage, creeping up, to make sure Im all the way in, so the door closes, without hitting my car. The [email protected] car dies at 1-2 MPH, and restarts, again, immediately, for me to pull up 3 more inches. Almost as annoying, is, when you're trying to make a right turn, at a red light, and the cross traffic is hauling mail. I often creep up anticipating pulling out, and I let my foot off the brake to creep, and the car doesn't move, why? because its not friggin running. Cant stand this stupid feature.

    BNR sent my tune to me, last night, and Jerry DISABLED it for me. No more auto start. POS.

    Yeah, I don't get this S/S feature myself. My car does not have it thank goodness, but if we have cars EASILY getting 40-50 MPG without it, why in gods name do we need it? So we can get 41 or 51 mpg? Nobody can ever convince me this does not create added wear and tear on the car's starter, tranny, engine. Plus, as previously pointed out, when going very slow or parking it's intrusively aggravating.

    No. City MPG, not highway.

    Meh. You learn to live with it (or shift to L when it needs to be disabled).

    I've let my dad and gf drive my car. Both stopped noticing it shutting off after a day or two of driving it. It's pretty seamless when you're not in stop-and-go traffic.

    There SHOULD be a delay of a few seconds before it shuts down, though. I think that would alleviate a lot of complaints - mine as well.
