Auto-engine off quirks

I generally don't mind the engine auto shut-off features but there are a few quicks with it:

1) Whenever I slowly drive into my garage (creeping along to squeeze it in right) I find that I'm not actually stopped but go slow enough that the engine turns off - arggg.

2) I find it strange that I can be really stopped, the engine turns off, but then I move the gear selector into park, that starts it up - don't really see the requirement for that - strange.

H'mmmm.

I don't know about your first one but second is kinda regular for any vehicle with the start stop feature. It's the same even for hybrids

I absolutely hate the start/stop feature in these news cars to be honest. I find with some of them though, if you can balance just light enough on the brakes (enough to keep the car stopped, but not fully depressed) you can keep it on but it's a pita.

I honestly just really would tell people if you really dislike the stop start feature on GM vehicles then just put the shifter in manual mode then your problem is solved. The ones in my Malibu that I have doesn't shut down at all times but again that's just me living in the hotter area of the United States aka New Mexico/Arizona area

I just knew because the Malibu I have does have the stop-start and it's the 2.5 I4 so whenever I put it in manual mode then it just doesn't shut it while at stop. But again since New Mexico is getting hotter again it's not even gonna shut off at all

Curious as to what the logic behind that is - why?

My guessing is if you have auto stop start while you put in manumatic mode is you would stall... but that's just my educated guess

Dealers should give us the option of shutting off things like stop/start and its probably a good idea to inquire about it while things are running smooth enough. Then if it starts acting up we know what to do. Better to be prepared especially with something so vital.

I know on the Jeep Cherokee you can but again I'm not sure if the dealer would know though
