I don't think I could get used to the engine shutting down at every stop. You can turn that feature off but you have to remember to do it.
Wonder if they got away from GM automatics going into this year. Do you know if it shuts off if the AC is on? I read some new car with the start/stop feature will not turn off at lights if your AC is on.
