There is a thread here ( http://www.cruzetalk.com/forum/9-general-discussion/171233-turning-off-autostop.html ); that touches on the subject of the Auto-stop feature @obermd mentions that turning the A/C on max and it will reduce the number of times auto-stop activates.Sometimes it Drives me Crazy I hope we eventually get the HOW TO of turning it off somehow.
Yup. That's why GM decided against an on/off button and just focused on making their system one of the best, least intrusive, in the business.It really never bothered me much in 3 weeks of driving one. Just something new to get used to. They're all going that way.
They thought about this. The starter is purposely built extra robustJust the amount of times it would do it, I do alot of city driving my concern is the life of the Starter with all the stopping and starting unless it does it some other way. Any thoughts on this?
I gotcha, so it's just the fear of the unknowns at this point...the experience isn't bad or anything like that?Just the amount of times it would do it, I do alot of city driving my concern is the life of the Starter with all the stopping and starting unless it does it some other way. Any thoughts on this?
It's not because of autostop that I leave it in performance mode either, I just like the extra pizzazz that it has in performance and it doesn't seem to affect the gas mileage much if at all.I haven't been bothered by it at all. But the easiest way to turn it off (for me at least) is to buy the tune from Trifecta. In performance mode it turns autostop off. I leave mine in performance mode 90% of the time.
