My 6MT has the auto start/stop but I leave it off. I don’t like it.

i cant imagine it would be very good with a MT, does it shut off every time you put the car in nuetral?

can you buy a defeat device for it?

I honestly wouldnt mind the stop/start so much if you could turn it off once and have it remember what state you left it in, but (at least in the cars i have driven with it) it resets to on every time you start the car :(

Mine has an on/off button next to the ignition button. I simply turn the feature off and leave it that way. It stays that way until you push the “on” button. But if it’s enabled, yes it would shut off the engine as soon as I was at a stop. First time this happened after I got the car I thought I had stalled it.

Magic's reading comprehension skills are horrible. It hurts my brain to think everyone is complaining about an automatic transmission automatically doing a 1-4 shift.

If you're in a MT, how does it know when to start? Foot off the brake pedal?

Today I used 5th gear in my car. I don't think I've used it in a year. Is it really common for 5th and 6th to be so close that 5th is useless?

even if you shut the engine off and restart it?

Clutch pedal in, engine starts.

the 1-4 skip shift would drive me nuts. Thankfully no such thing on my MT cars. In my M 3rd is my favorite gear 😉

I rarely use 5th or 6th. Driving around town, rarely us 4th either - like to cruise at 6K rpm - not good for gas mileage tho
