Just bought a 2021 Limited. Is the start / stop feature standard? If so, I don’t have it…. Yay!

Welcome to the forum.

This should answer your question. This is from the 2021 specification sheet:

I have attached the full document. It might have additional information for you.

Hmmm…I wonder if the start/stop feature can be disabled with TechStream? I drove a rental car with it and it was a nuisance.

Techstream won't do it. However there are several threads in this 5th gen forum on how to disable auto start/stop. You only have to remove the wire going to the hood switch.

I'm glad mine didn't come with it. When I had BMW, they gave me a loaner one time which had this feature. It was very nerve racking while sitting a t a stop light. The engine is not running and you're sitting there hoping the engine will start back up again. No thank you.

I have no concerns with the S/S function. It works well and I hardly notice it now. Maybe it works better on the hybrids? I'm glad that my engine isn't running while I'm stuck in traffic or waiting for a long light. And especially considering recent gas prices, whenever I fill my tank, I thank the "tree huggers" for developing fuel efficient cars.
