You can thank emissions and fuel mileage standards for that one. If the company uses the feature to meet emissions standards, they're required, at least in the US, to have the system default to the ON position when the car restarts.Rather than just having a switch to turn off this feature each time the engine is started, it would be nice if there was a setting in the "settings" menu to permanently disable it, if the owner chooses to do so.
Ummm... The car alarms when you get out of the car and the engine is on. Very loud and annoying. No way you can unknowingly leave the car on in your garage.I too find it annoying and for the few drops of fuel it might save, not worth it. A word of caution about it. What might happen if you drive into your garage, put your foot on the brake and come to a stop...the engine stops...you put it into park..exit the vehicle and go into the house. If you were distracted by something or possibly are hard of hearing and didn't hear the engine re-start, what might happen? You guessed, you left your vehicle running inside your closed garage. Carbon monoxide? OR, another scenario...you pull into a stop at the mall, do the same thing as above..exit your vehicle and start walking towards the mall. As you walk away you click the lock button on your remote, thinking the vehicle is stopped and locked. Not so..it is still running and unlocked. When you come out from the mall, your vehicle is gone. That is one reason I wish our Palisade had folding mirrors. On my other vehicle, I look for the mirrors to fold in as I am walking away and lock the vehicle. My point: be very careful with this "feature".
A 3rd reason I don't like this feature that applies mainly to turbo-charged vehicles. Have you heard of heat-soak? It is what happens to the turbo charger bearings when the turbo is hot, the engine stops and doesn't have oil circulating thru it. The common shaft can warp due to the heat, causing turbo damage. If you are driving a turbo charged engine and the engine is hot, I highly recommend keeping it running to keep the oil circulating thru the turbo bearings. Rather than just having a switch to turn off this feature each time the engine is started, it would be nice if there was a setting in the "settings" menu to permanently disable it, if the owner chooses to do so.
The manual clearly states that it will turn the engine back on if the AC is needed. The temperature in your car doesn't change that quickly that 1 min at a stop light without AC is going to change things.I love my Palisade!! The only thing I "dislike" is the .....here it comes...Start-Stop system.
The main reason is that I live in South Florida, and when the Auto Start kicks in the AC goes almost dead. I know is a couple of seconds, but it matters to me. Also, unquestionably, there is a DELAY, short or not, from break to gas pedal, and then a little jump that is kind of annoying.
Why Hyundai does not give you the option to disable it? No idea. The main reason for its existence is:
"A start-stop system or stop-start system automatically shuts down and restarts the internal combustion engine to reduce the amount of time the engine spends idling, thereby reducing fuel consumption and emissions. "
How much idling time does it save compare to non-idling? Fuel consumption and emission!! Well the last one sounds like a government regulation and those are.....I will save my opinion here since we are getting into the politics arena.
Conclusion: Give the consumer and options.
Everyone has an opinion...right?The manual clearly states that it will turn the engine back on if the AC is needed. The temperature in your car doesn't change that quickly that 1 min at a stop light without AC is going to change things.
And as to why you can't disable it, that's because emissions and fuel consumption numbers were calculated with it on. Since these are numbers provided to the regulatory authorities, the car has to keep this system on.
Yes, you feel it a little bit. It's actually one of the smoothest systems out there. Take it from me (and others) who have driven cars with far worse start/stop systems.
As to the environment, surely you agree that it's a good thing to preserve it, right?
So I have limited. The A button to the right of center console was not lit up when I bought. At first light it stopped then started again. I hate that. I just pushed the button to light up orange and now stays off. Try that. Button is not on the dashboard it is on the center console.Any way to PERMANENTLY disable stop/start? Yes I know there is a button on the dash however it is annoying to push every start up plus I do not trust my wife is doing this either.
