+1 I love this feature on my car.. the wait for stop lights here often is around 2-3 minutes (and basically it only needs 4 seconds to start saving gas).

It's especially rough when you stop for too long and perhaps battery is low and it starts on its own.
Either way, I don't see A.S.S. go away. They have it in Europe for over a year now (I believe 2 years or so already), more and more cars are getting it and in several years it will be a normal thing for everyone really.
