Auto Stop/Start

Asked by Jul 31, 2016 at 12:20 AM about the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4WD

Question type: Car Customization

We just bought a 2016 and love it - except the Start/Stop. It's nice that the
Eco setting "sticks" in this model (I leave it on), but the Stop/Start doesn't.
You have to set it every time you're in the Jeep. It's kind of disconcerting
being in the middle of an intersection waiting for oncoming traffic to clear so
you can turn left and having the engine shut off. I live in a very congested
suburban area, and as soon as my foot's off the brake, I usually need to
GO. Really wish there was an option in the settings to turn this off
permanently. Think Jeep will do that at some point, maybe with a software
update? I think consumers should be in control of something as intrusive as
this.

Ask your salesman- if you don't like the way these 21st century cars drive, try something else-

EPA knows better than you..Just as a Politician knows whats best for you. Try not to think. Vehicles are really to dangerous for people to own and drive they will be going away. Start reading some of these Government study's!
