Re: Stop and start

I had what is probably the same or similar Stop/Start system on my XF which I owned for 5 years and over 100,000 miles and had (and still have) no issues with the system, no problems with the auxilliary battery (in the XF) or with the starter motor. I did learn to nudge the steering if I wanted the engine running so I could dart out into gaps in traffic on busy roads or make a swift start (and also selecting 1st).

Most of the time I simply didn't and still don't notice the Stop/Start as I'm not usually in a hurry and it picks up in time to not be noticable for most of the times I pull away from being stationary.

I have now done just over 15,000 miles in my F-Pace.

To be honest its only fitted so they can meet the new laws with cars and pollution.

I turn it off every time i drive the car as personally i find it a pain in the backside, just wish it would remember the fact i turned it off as every time you start the car you have to turn it off.

I couldn't agree more.

That's a first :lol:
