maybe in horrible city traffic or something where you are stopped for 80% of the total time it could serve a purpose, but in rural areas like where I am you are driving 98% of the time and maybe hit a light or two for 10 seconds, 20 at most
I totally agree.

I would love to see some long term studies or even just plain use over a 20-30 year period to see cars with the auto start-stop feature vs. cars w/o them and the life span of the OEM starter of the same two vehicles with one equipped with AS and one w/o it.
