You need to better educate yourself on the subject my friend:wink2:Start/Stop will beat the starter up more
Our Oz market December 2011 released standard CVT XV/Crosstrex had auto start stop... plus, wasn't the Crosstrek "mild hybrid" a start/stop system?
That's a great video, but who really drives that slowly/methodically?Auto Start Stop maybe new to the US market and the 2019 Forester but other markets have had the Auto Start Stop standard on the previous SJ Forester since January 2013.
The vehicle battery type for the Auto Start Stop is a Q85 here in Australia on the SJ Forester, the following video explains the Auto Start Stop in the impreza Subaru Impreza Auto Start-Stop Technical Information - YouTube
5 plus years of driving a Auto Start Stop Forester, I've had no issues whats so ever with it.
I think you may be misunderstanding. I believe the manual to mean that under high heat conditions Auto-Start/Stop will be disabled until the engine cools down. :nerd:Who is going to not run their a/c or defroster so they can use the auto stop/start.
That is ridiculous! Sounds like I will just be pushing that cut off stop/start button daily!
Yes I've seen it and experienced it over the last 5 plus years of driving a auto start stop Forester, the auto start stop doesn't concern me one little bit, the replacement costs of the eyesight genuine windscreens are more of a concern after 3 windscreens in the last 18 months on a non eyesight Forester. Thank goodness for insurance:grin2:Have you guys seen in the 2019 manual that the auto stop/start may not work with the a/c on high or rear window defroster on, etc? WTH?!!?!?!
