Why NOT To Buy An Auto Stop/Start Car

Why NOT To Buy An Auto Stop/Start Car

Scotty shows how it may not be such a great idea to buy one of the new cars with automatic stop and start systems. Yes, they may save a tiny amount of gas, but the wear on the engine and electronics is probably not worth it as he explains.

Hello Scotty I recently joined you I bought a 2019 Toyota Tundra TRD PRO on the advice of my sons friend who’s a Toyota certified mechanic- strictly for pleasure- I’m 65 years young lol He told me it will last me years being I’m only using it for pleasure - I own a 2016 infinity Q50 as well- I use that everyday - What’s your thoughts

Spot on Scotty...constant starting and stopping while driving KILLS your starter and drains the battery. My new 2019 Jetta has that feature...first thing I do after I start the car...turn OFF the start-stop feature. And, because it's a German car, I lease it...any problems, the dealer gets to fix it (you did a video on German cars...great advice). Speaking of the Jetta...The 2019 is matted to 8 speed transmission; gets amazing mileage on the freeway...no kidding...42.7 MPG. Also, it is sooooo much fun to drive in SPORT mode...but...I had to change the tires as the OEM tires were not matched to SPORT driving. Speaking of tires...my father told me back in 1965 that two of the most important elements of a car are the tires and the brakes...he said NEVER go cheap on either as they are you life line. Have you ever done a show on the importance of tires and brakes? And getting the right tires for your driving style and where you live? Thanks Scotty! Love your videos and your enthusiasm. Cheers!

This is Samantha Marks emailing you from Summit Chevrolet looking for Leslie Delcarmen. We are further investigating your vehicle and we are finding an extreme amount of aftermarket wiring within the vehicle constantly pulling draw from the battery. Due to the wiring issues we are already $500 of diagnose into the vehicle and we are still needing more time to find the point of failure. We are contacting you to see if you wish to continue with diagnoses or if you would wish to tow the vehicle elsewhere. Please contact me back as soon as possible. This is my email or can call me at 315-258-2000. Thank you and have a great day.

I hope you can helping me

Realize that in General Motors cars that have auto stop/start, they don't give you the option to shut it off. The only way to "shut it off" is to have the A/C running. Then it won't shut off and start up again.
