I don't like it either but I'm pretty sure the manufacturers are not required to install this (like they are with seatbelts, for example). It's something they have chosen to do to meet efficiency requirements. They could do the same with smaller, more efficient engines, like in the UK and Europe but that's a whole other argument... 😸Dummest thing ever put on a car as a result of the environmental movement. it has been shown that the supposed savings add up to next to nothing. None of our subies have it but it will be something that gets turned off...yuk!
Well, if we had a category for every opinion here is would be a pretty long, flat bell curve, LOL!You left out me!
I'm in the crowd who doesn't care if it's there. I don't like it, I don't hate it. I just don't want to be forced to use it. If I want to use it, I'll turn it on. You have the option of "I'll turn it off if I don't want to use it" but no option for people like me
Expressing opinions is good! Especially in this form. I think it's a pretty straight forward thread, but I just can't vote lol.
Some people just like to watch the world burn I guess 😈
Our Porsche flat 6 is quite smooth, even in it's "cold run mode". They just are not building engines today that are very good(properly balanced, forged components, higher quality bearings,service design, etc..). Basically, they are throw-away, disposable components that are difficult, or sometimes not designed for rebuilding/servicing.From the peanut gallery. The boxer engine just by its design is rough starting. That side to side motion is very noticeable. Supposedly, the Porche boxer engine does the same thing.
If I could disable it with an easter egg I would. I'm not paying a $100 for a electronic disabler. It does not add value to the car.
Go for it! No one will be right or wrong, especially as it's such a small sample. FWIW, I thought it would be more polarized but as more votes are being cast it's looking more and more like a bell curve with a negative skew.Interesting take on the results.
I sum it up differently.
I just feel like, alright, we went through how many decades of vehicles that worked just fine they way they are?
It seems like a lot of this is people's feelings and their dislike of changes. That's fine, but it's also not feasible to convince them differently.I don't like it based on nothing more than a gut feeling
