I do NOT like the Auto-Stop feature, never have, never will. Had it in our '16 Pilot, almost got t-boned, a few times, because of it, could NOT get out of the way fast enough, because of it. This feature does NOT restart the engine fast enough, should you need to get out of the way of an out of control vehicle, coming at you.
- Thought I had found a way to disable it in the Vehicle Settings, but it does NOT.
- On the newer GM trucks, that have it, if you plug a trailer in, the Auto-Stop on them is disabled. Even a Tow Hitch Brake Light being plugged in will disable it on the GM trucks. Not too keen on installing a tow hitch in hopes that this trick will work.
- I've come across some other forums where they have pulled the ON/OFF button out of the console and inserted a jumper to disable it. I really don't want to tear my console apart to disable it.
