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

Just curious as to how some of you new owners are liking the stop and start feature they added for 2016.

And for those who disable it at startup, is it becoming a pain in the butt?

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

love it. no issues whatsoever here. starts right up the second i take my foot off the brake.

also, i know some folks were asking in a different thread - if you turn eco mode off, it will stay off at next start up.

Can you hear or feel the car start with the windows closed? How about when the windows are open it must be annoying somewhat?

MPG's?

yes you can hear & feel it start up, as when it shuts off it's silent. as i specifically wanted a '16 for this feature (among other things) and it's functioning as designed, i don't see this as a negative.

so far, MPGs in mostly "city" conditions, some highway, are near 20.

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

We've had ours for 2 weeks. It is noticeable on shutdown and start up if you are paying attention for it or if you have the radio muted. I have not noticed it if my wife and I are having a conversation or if the radio is turned up at all.

However, there is one negative I've noticed. I have a tendency to pull away quickly from being stopped. I don't mean flooring the pedal but rather moving my foot quickly from the brake to the gas pedal. If I do that too quickly and the engine hasn't started fully then the car sort of shudders a little going forward, almost like a mild version of the bouncing that you could get with someone learning how to drive a manual. That being said, it is totally my fault. If you even pause just a tiny bit, half of a potato, then the car is fully started up and ready to go when you hit the gas.

Overall I'd say we really haven't noticed it after the first week. My wife was pretty apprehensive at first and considered turning it off each time she started but never did and hasn't complained about it at all since. In fact we both absolutely love the car, although I did get some dirty looks for putting it to Offroad 2 while waiting for her to come outside and get into the car. Apparently she didn't appreciate having to climb 4+ inches higher to get in.

You can also control the engine stop by not stopping if you don't press hard on the brakes when you come to a stop. I have had my 2016 Summit for two weeks now and I am liking it.

Yes, but it's not clear to me for some reason if it can be turned off and stay off post-shutdown.

The STOP/START system will reset itself back to an ON condition every time the ignition is turned off and back on.

Also from the 2016 Owners Manual...

Possible Reasons The Engine Does Not Autostop

Prior to engine shut down, the system will check many safety and comfort conditions to see if they are fulfilled. Detailed information about the operation of the Stop/ Start system may be viewed in the DID Stop/Start Screen. In the following situations, the engine will not stop:

• Driver’s seat belt is not buckled.
• Driver’s door is not closed.
• Battery temperature is too warm or cold.
• Battery charge is low.
• The vehicle is on a steep grade.
• Cabin heating or cooling is in process and an acceptable cabin temperature has not been achieved.
• HVAC is set to full defrost mode at a high blower speed.
• HVAC set to MAX A/C.
• Engine has not reached normal operating temperature.
• The transmission is not in a forward gear.
• Hood is open.
• Vehicle is in 4LO transfer case mode.
• Brake pedal is not pressed with sufficient pressure.

Other Factors Which Can Inhibit Autostop Include:

• Accelerator pedal input.
• Engine temp too high.
• 5 MPH threshold not achieved from previous AUTOSTOP
• Steering angle beyond threshold.
• ACC is on and speed is set.

It may be possible for the vehicle to be driven several times without the STOP/START system going into a STOP/START READY state under more extreme conditions of the items listed above.

To Start The Engine While In Autostop Mode

While in a forward gear, the engine will start when the brake pedal is released or the throttle pedal is depressed. The transmission will automatically re engage upon engine restart.

Conditions That Will Cause The Engine To Start Automatically

While In Autostop Mode:

• The transmission selector is moved out of DRIVE.
• To maintain cabin temperature comfort.
• HVAC is set to full defrost mode.
• HVAC system temperature or fan speed is manually adjusted.
• Battery voltage drops too low.
• Low brake vacuum (e.g. after several brake pedal applications).
• STOP/START OFF switch is pressed.
• A STOP/START system error occurs.
• 4WD system is put into 4LO mode.
