Ok, a beef.....a big beef.
Seems Ford has capitulated to the granolas and it defaults to shutting the engine off every time you come to a stop.

Hmmmm....where to start...maybe the wear and tear on multiple starts?...when was that where most engine wear happens again?

Won't even go near the idea of a quick acceleration like a left turn if it feks up.

Of course, there is a button to disable it, but why the hell do it that way?...why not give the option to turn it on?

Oh right, that would not fit in with the carbon kool aid

I will be looking for a programmer to eliminate this assinine piece of green gayness.

LOL, please tell us how you really feel. But since you can disable the ghey technology, why do you want a tuner (which will probably void a portion of the warranty)? Or is the disable just for one drive?

That sucks! My coworker just ordered a new F150 for work. He was ranting about that also.

It's probably part of the CAFE standards, where they have to get the whole fleet's average MPG up to a certain number to appease the government gods.

Thank you sir, may I have another.

Starters fail. What's changed is where they usually failed in your garage or a parking lot, it'll now happen on the freeway. During a pouring rainstorm, or 11 o'clock @ night.

This crossed my mind, and I'm sure they did something to strengthen these and make them have longer lives, but still! There's no way they can be used so much.

Imagine the stop & go traffic in the city, where you are hitting stop lights every 2-3 blocks. That's asking for early detonation.

That would suck... be pulled out in an intersection waiting to make a ninja left at the light change and realize your engine is not running

I once had to sign a Civic Hybrid out of the fleet at work for a day.

It would shut off at stops, but being a hybrid would start to move as it was restarting. The transition from pure-electric to gas power, as it took off, felt exactly like a manual shift car on the verge of stalling.

Let's just say it took a few times before my feet got the memo about not having to react to that sensation...

Newer Prius and Fusion Hybrid have reduced/eliminated that sensation. It still feels weird rolling up to a stop and having the engine kill as you touch the brakes (which aren't really brakes- it's the generator slowing the car down until the last few seconds). The transition's pretty seamless though, given they motor on electric, gas, or both depending on the traffic conditions and what you're asking the car to do.
