He's talking about his Grand Cherokee, which got start/stop in 2016.

LOL... probably not enough to offset the cost of adding the technology during the typical ownership period.

Re: I hate the start/ stop on my 2016 Cherokee

Very annoying feature especially living in nyc where stop and go is every 200 feet. I usually remember to shut it when I hit the first red light a block from my house.

Re: I hate the start/ stop on my 2016 Cherokee

Why not have purchased a SmartCar for NYC, or a Prius? I live north of Boston and needed it for the winter weather. My 2015 Limited has ESS and I don't even notice it now. I will say, though, that a user setting to delay it activating after meeting the threshold to apply it would be much more user-friendly and contribute to its acceptability. I mean a few selections like 0 seconds, 5 seconds, or 15 seconds after coming to a stop (where the speed of the vehicle allows ESS to activate) is all it takes. For me, I roll stop thru stop signs more than I did in the past!

Re: I hate the start/ stop on my 2016 Cherokee

The 2016 (January build) KL LTD the ESS does not seem
to kick in if you do not fully depress brake,I come to full
stop but then let up slightly and it stays stopped but it does
not kick in.
Almost a rolling stop feeling but 5 - 10 second full stop.

Just unplugging the hood switch disables the stop/start

I have ESS on another vehicle (not my 2014 Trailhawk). It also will not auto-stop if the brakes are feathered to extremely light presssure at final stop. In addition, if engaged, the ESS will auto-start if brake pressure is feathered down to almost zero while at a full stop. {I'm not sure if the Jeep ESS does this.} Using these feathering techniques, I now can fully control the ESS and have come to accept it. BTW, the ESS restarts so fast (a small fraction of a second) that it doesn't affect normal driving - only quick racing style launches.

This made all the difference for me... That and in the summer if you set the cabin temp low enough (even with AC off) ESS never engages under the condition that the cabin is cooling/heating. I just leave the fan on the lowest setting with the temp set to 62 and AC off, windows open.

Re: I hate the start/ stop on my 2016 Cherokee

For whatever it's worth on my girlfriend's 2016 BMW 328 I X Drive, the SALESMAN disabled it for her before she even picked it up. He was aware how much she disliked the feature from the previous one. Not convinced FCM is btight enough to provide a defeat like that. That based on the lousy job they''ve done on all of the electronic sccessories on my 14 KL.
