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

So happy I got a 2015 V6 to avoid this stop/start feature. The way Sport mode selection is made is a really nice feature on the 2015 and 2014s too.

Picked mine up yesterday and didn't think I would like it but it has been great so far. Like previously stated, if the radio is on or you are in a conversation you don't even notice it.

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

Basically, in order to obtain better fuel economy, many manufacturers are using this feature. When your car comes to a red light, for instance, the engine will shut off. When you take your foot off the brake, the engine restarts.

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

For those of you with a '16... what kind of MPG for combined driving are you seeing. What's on your DID for MPG?

Not looking for Prius like heroics on the highway, just some real life day-in, day-out MPG

For me with about 40% highway and 60% city I am getting around 20 mpg. Only have driven around 300 miles currently.

I believe DID means: Driver Interactive Display

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

ah, ok. that's what i'm using, i'm sure it's simply doing the math i would do manually. it's 31 miles from my house to the airport, mostly highway, which i do about once a week. otherwise, it's "city" driving. 19.9 right now.

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

Have had the start/stop on my new limited for 2 days now and one of the things I like about the way it is programmed is if you come up on stop and "roll" traffic like a long backup at a stoplight, it will shut off the engine the first time you stop. But then as traffic creeps up say a car length at a time, it doesn't keep shutting it off each time you stop after the first time. There must be programming that tells it to deactivate until you have driven a certain distance or above a certain speed limit.

I remember reading somewhere that it doesn't activate again until you get above 5 mph.
