hi im a new member ,i can turn off the stop start on my dash switch just have to remember to do it each time i get in the car, was also told at the garage it only works on a flat road not on a hill, hope this helps
Probably gonna get the wrath of other forum users, but I like the stop start tech, although I've had my Q3 7 days and still find it a novelty, but in saying that, if it saves fuel, surely that's a god thing, btw by Caribou brown is certainly attracting loads of attention, sat tonight under a supermarket carpark for an hour waiting for the missus to get a few things, with fluorescent lights over head and couldn't help people staring at the car. It felt nice !!! By the way Merry Christmas
My cars a lease car so it goes back in three years so any damage and wear and tear to the starter motor and battery is not a problem. If it was my own personnel car and a keeper i would never use it to save damage in the long term. Its a good idea in theory and some times in practice but like its been said unless you stop for a minute or longer it becomes a pain always seeming to cut in at the wrong time. Driving a auto shows its flaws more acutely.
