The introduction of Auto Stop/Start (AS/S) with the '20+ models has generated a LOT of heated discussion here, for and against. I'm curious about the breakdown and whether it will inform us if AS/S is a good idea or not.

No need to express an opinion or vent here, there are PLENTY of other threads for that... 馃樃

I'm just interested who is for it, who's against it and who doesn't care.

EDIT: JUST ADDED TWO NEW CATEGORIES - YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR VOTE IF YOU WISH!

I'll try to keep this up to date while the votes are coming in:

The 2021 Impreza I just test drove didn鈥檛 have this feature which has me wondering what the status is. I wish the settings would let you set a default status. Id want it on all the time if I was in a shitty place to drive like San Francisco or New York but in rural land you rarely stop for more than a second or two which makes it annoying.

For comments about AS/S try this thread and the specs of the Impreza:

OK, then you should probably vote for "I hate AS/S and want to eliminate it completely" (as you have, LOL)!

One thing I will say is that the Subaru implementation of AS/S is what I dislike the most. I have experienced it other cars and was impressed. When a Subie does it, your teeth rattles and it's measured on the Richter scale. And this is in a Crosstek or Forester loaner from the stealership.

This thread is going great places. I find myself all the sudden enjoying the AS/S. I might need to change my vote. What are we talking about again?

I let votes be changed, so go ahead! 馃樃

We're voting on ice cream flavors, whether vanilla should be the only option or if other flavors are allowed...

NO FLAVORS! ONLY VANILLA!

mmmm... ice cream.
OAK tells me not to buy her favorite (H盲agen-Dazs dulce de leche) because it will be gone. Sure enough... 馃樃

Hate it! Turn it off every time I turn on engine, if I forget I turn it on while driving. Fine it to be the most useless of features and doubt the claims of which it is supposed to accomplish.

Chart updated, seems to be skewing more to the negative...
