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.

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!
