Default Does anyone know how to turn off the Auto Start Stop feature?

I'm trying to help my mother out. She bought a brand new 2020 Subaru Outback and the center section by the radio is like one gigantic iPad. Everything is electronic with no knobs at all which isn't my style, but hey, it's not my car.

Anyways, I know how to switch over to one of the 3 bottom settings from the car, home, and personal settings. In the car settings, one of them I can turn off the Auto Start Stop feature which my mother hates, and i've driven the car before and I find it annoying as well, but then again my WRX was a stick, so that would never work on a car like that. Whenever I turn off the feature it stays off, but when I go to the local grocery store for example and lock it up and get back in and start it up and then come to a stop it automatically turns itself back on. I thought if I linked my mother's iPhone to the car and then re-applied my settings it would stick since the key fob is linked to the driver profile, but the Auto Start Stop feature still turns on automatically regardless of which key fob I use.

I figure this applies to anyone with an Outback, Forester, Ascent, or Legacy. I know WRX/STis don't have all this fancy touchscreen only stuff, at least they have some manual knobs lol

It is impossible to permanently disabled, due to fleet fuel economy numbers. Take it up with the EPA or California if you want it changed, we'll all sign the petition.

What is the point of the digital button to turn it on and off for? You mean no matter what I do in the settings, it will automatically just turn itself back on?

If it's like Ford, then every time you turn the car on, you'd have to press the button to disable it. Not familiar with these newer Subarus, but didn't realize they had it as well.
