Hybrids work the same way, engine turns off when stopped. No point running the engine if your not moving, although there are certain times when it needs to run.KingPhoenix wrote: ↑Nov 20th, 2017 8:38 amFord made the 2017 Escape with Auto-Start/Stop always on. (pull up to a light car engine turns off, then restarts when you want to go again) You have to turn it off every time you start the vehicle if you don't want it. I had no idea that this was the case,(neither did their service dept) car never shut off during the test drive so i never thought twice about it. It ruins the driving experience so much it is the worst "feature".
Wondering if anyone has any ideas to disable it completely, i'm ready to open up the dash and rewire it if necessary. I would not have bought this car if i had know this.
How does it ruin your driving experience?
