but then there is that instance when, like with the OP...it fails
No thanks....If I ever got stuck (before ASS) on a rr xing or bridge up, I had the sense of shutting my engine off with the key, and with all my prior vehicles being manuals, worst case I could always push start the things.
So no ASS for me
And if the two were related, which I doubt they were, then 1 data point does not indicate a trend. Especially in a pool of 120,000 or so. There will always be outliers who have crazy things happen. That's just statistics."but then there is that instance when, like with the OP...it fails "
are you implying the battery failed because of the auto start stop? or are we splitting hairs here?
of the 4 vehicles parked in my driveway 3 have had recent battery issues. the only one with auto start stop is the ranger and its the only battery so far that didnt require replacement.
batteries are volatile little brats. if youre trying to link the OP's battery this way, its quite a stretch
Again, I don't care if anyone uses it or not. I just want everyone to understand why. I hate people making decisions based on bad data, or even no data. Learn everything you can, then decide. Even if your reason is "I don't like it", that's fine, as long as you've tried it and/or given it a fair shot.
