My motor never shuts off, id disable it if it did haha I dont care enough to save that little bit of gas, I dont want to put that kind of stress on my starter, or motor/transmissionNew forum member here.
I bought an automatic iA in Sapphire about a week ago in Sapphire.
Since I bought it, I've been doing further research. I've also been reading up on its cousin the Mazda 2.
From what I've read, the 2 has a start-stop system (Mazda calls it i-Stop). I can't find anything in the manual or Scion's marketing materials about a start-stop system. My iA's engine is pretty quiet, but as far as I can tell, it keeps running when I come to a complete stop. Does anyone have experience with the i-Stop in the 2? Does it stop the engine every time you come to a complete stop? Is this just not in my sweet iA?
