Re: 2016 Owners...how's the stop and start working?

Years ago we started sending "field service technicians" out to "repair" locomotives with instructions called "FSM's" (field service modifications). We were often accused of "engineering" in the field. The problem is that with very complicated systems such as locomotives, autos, and many other technological devices, you don't really know how things will act in the real world until they get out into the real world. Anything with coded software often is released as beta test versions. So the beta testers are often just customers who are willing to take a chance, and report back problems. Admittedly, that's much less of a problem with a software program than with an expensive vehicle. But the real world test is where the problems are found by the beta tester, or as we used to call them, guinea pigs.

Re: 2016 Owners...how's the stop and start working?

I don't have an issue with my KL and S/S. Initially I turned it off at each driving cycle but then after a few months I thought I really should give it a fair go and now, I never turn it off (16 months of ownership).

As an aside, I did have a convo with the dealership in the early days and they said they can disable it permanently if I chose. I never followed that up in detail but the KL is due for a service in a few weeks, so while I am there I will re-investigate the possibility of this again and if so, it could make a few folk on here happier.

That is assuming of course that the system on the '16 WK is the same as the KL. I'll keep you posted with what I find out.

yeah... if it's doing that, you may want to take it to the dealer. that's not how this feature works.

The only way they'll fix it is if enough people complain. So I plan on being a real pain in the ass until they do.
