Newfangled car features.......

…..not crazy about these new car features.    I don't want any vehicles that break automatically, and I don't like the start/stop feature that will probably wear out the starter just as your warranty runs out.  It's just MORE GOVERNMENT telling us how to live, what to drive, and what our options are going to be.

Remind me to never buy a car with the "Automatic Break" Feature.  That could run into some money. == My car has the stop/start feature which I hate.  Luckily they have a switch where you can turn the feature off.  Ford also says they have a heavy-duty starter and battery for all of the extra use.  We will see.  Smiley

Hope that starter is better than the one on my Ford. I have replaced it twice and it's a 2012.

Yup the heavy duty starter and battery will last right up through the warranty period.  I have a 2018 F-150 and the first thing I do is turn off auto start/stop.  Would be nice if off could be programmed to be the default, but I suspect the Government has its hand in this.

So the stop/start feature is just hybrid ?

I never liked the hybrids. I'll stick with the old gas engine.

Auto start/stop means when stopped, the engine will stop and restart when you take your foot off he brake.  Standard on F-150 which of course is not a hybrid.

Problem is most dealers can't even fix most of the new cars today.

Check the '19 Toyota.  I had a '13 Avalon Hybrid and it didn't have the stop/start. 
Bought a new '15 and I love it.  Great car.
