Interesting and concerning at the same time. I wonder if the # of auto start/stop cycles are stored? Something I would want to know if shopping for a used car in the future.
I have always disabled the start/stop function and I presently have 4500 miles on the car, and I will continue doing so. I especially didn't want the oil draining from around the cylinders repeatedly during the 2K mile break-in.FYI. This speaks to the 991.2 but we share the same function in our 982, similar potential for premature wear on turbo shaft/bearings related to frequency of start/stop.
PorscheBoost - Porsche 991.2 9A2 3.0 Start/Stop contributing to premature shaft/bearing wear?
I looked at that module but didn't want to fuss with the center console given that I essentially never forget to disengage the Start/Stop feature.
Same here. I almost bought it but then didn't. My center console trim is painted and I didn't want to take the risk of chipping the edges unnecessarily.I looked at that module but didn't want to fuss with the center console given that I essentially never forget to disengage the Start/Stop feature.
To me, the concern would be that the issue wouldn't be a problem up until the warranty is already expired.I have it engaged and it works when it needs to when I am in traffic. When I am running, it being on means nothing. I’m sure the engineers know what they are doing and if keeping it on breaks something, that is what warranty is for.
While it saves very little fuel, even a little can be significant. I saved over $3500 in tax because the tested combined consumption was 6.9 L/100 Km rather than 7.I wonder if Porsche and M-B making ON the default setting was dictated by EU fuel consumption testing protocol.....
