This is why my dad won't own a new car. The only option he likes, but is not a necessity, is cruise. He doesn't want anything to break, or have to worry about anything.
I don't consider being in your 30s to be older. LOL.
I would also be perfectly happy with no features: crank windows, push the little knob to lock the car and use the key to unlock, start and open the trunk, even manual steering is fine with me. KISS - Keep It Simple Stupid.
Only a thousand? Gosh, part timer.I am personally not too concerned about it being reliable. This technology has been out for some time. Just personal preference. Glad some folks like it. My guess is someday in near future I will buy a car that has auto start stop. I am driving my ctd around a thousand miles a week, it has been fantastic so far and very happy with it.
Nice to meet you. Call someone an idiot again and that's the last we'll see of you here.You are an idiot, I haven't met a single person that wants it or likes it & I've been in business for over 10 years. On top of: just the plain annoyance of it, the lack of confidence to be able to pull out when you need to AND the very noticeable starting & stopping, how about the extraordinary additional & unnecessary wear & tear on your starting system? Because you're a Chevy dealer you welcome all that extra service business and revenue. For you common folk, a dealers profits are very much more prevalent o the service side; by a long shot....
Hey, that sounds like my mom's 2016 Chevy Spark LS. Crank windows, no cruise, no remote unlock. I think the dealer was asking 11,500 brand new.Well I am older, I am in my 30's. I been around long enough to find out that these so called "new features" eventually break and when they do its a big inconvenience and cost alot of money to fix. I just don't like features period. If it was up to me I would still purchase a car with crank windows. I wish GM would just build something that I like. When I purchase my next GM vehicle which will probably be in the next few weeks I am sure the salesman is going to ask what I like about the car and I am going to be honest with him and tell him that "I like nothing, absolutely nothing".
I like being able to leave my key in my pocket, walk up the the door and press a button on the door handle (or grab the handle in our Chrysler 2016 town and country) and have the door unlock, get in and put my foot the brake and press the start button.Exactly. I do see a purpose with remote start and remote lock and unlock. But I could live without those items.
I still have not found an answer as to why we need a push button start. I have asked numerous people at work and friends and the only conclusion I can come to is when it breaks it costs more money.
You don't have to do it every time you come to a stop. Just when you put it down into drive. Instead of putting it in drive you put it in L and press the + on the top of the gear selector until it say 6 in the dashboard and drive as normal.Don't really want to do this everytime I come to a stop. Just want to be able to drive a car normally.
Still cuts off with ac on max, but less frequently and for less time than EcoYou don't have to do it every time you come to a stop. Just when you put it down into drive. Instead of putting it in drive you put it in L and press the + on the top of the gear selector until it say 6 in the dashboard and drive as normal.
I think it also won't do it if you have the AC set to max (orange instead of green (eco) LED).
My auto-start/stop hasn't been working this week. It hasn't shut off once. Battery might be low from sitting for several days. Not sure.
It sure as **** is nicer. The Volt has passive entry and push-button start, while our other cars have to use the remote (or in the case of the Camaro - the key itself), and it's much more convenient.I like being able to leave my key in my pocket, walk up the the door and press a button on the door handle (or grab the handle in our Chrysler 2016 town and country) and have the door unlock, get in and put my foot the brake and press the start button.
Its not a necessity for me, but I prefer it to having to pull the key out and stick it in the ignition. There was the issue Chevy had in the Cobalts with the key turning out of run when it was loaded with a heavy set of objects on the key ring too...
I just went out to my car, started it up. Put it in L and pressed the + button 5 times. Took me about 10 seconds. If it annoys you that bad then by all means trade the blasted thing in! Otherwise change your driving habits and quit trying to creep every time you can move forward 3 inches. Also there is a cool down period where you have to exceed a certain speed, time and then stop again before it activates again. But thanks for making the account, visiting the site just so you can post your complaint LOL. Have a nice day!Haven't had mine a good month and am about to trade it in , #1 reason is the auto stop , was told you won't even notice it , bs, that's all I notice! Quite irritating when trying to drive as much stop and go ad I do.
