Whether or not the auto-start/stop resets makes very little difference to me. Come on, pushing a button is hardly a big deal.
Well, we're talking about the auto start/stop feature, not how long it takes to load the groceries. It's literally the time it takes to push a button. I just don't see that as a life altering problem.Okay, let's say you like "Sport" mode, you like driving in the daytime with your fog lights on (which I do now on ST with bright LEDs), and you want auto-stop off.
So every drive, I see as my typical set-up scenario:
(1) start car
(2) set drive mode to "Sport"
(3) set parking lights on ( needed to set fogs)
(4) turn fog lights on ( not persistent setting)
(5) set auto start/stop off
Then drive like heck to make up for the 45 second set-up time Yep, not a big deal ... I guess ??
