3) if it does catch you by surprise and shut off, gently turn the steering wheel and it will restart. I like this feature because I can save some gas but still have it running just before the light turns green. You don't have to turn it far, just to the point where you feel the resistance; almost a gentle tug does it.

With these options at my disposal, I probably won't need to have it reprogrammed.
Or put it in Sport mode
