I like it when I know I have to wait outside for a min or two when someone runs in cause they need to get something

or when I stop by and my girl wants to take pics of the scenery

It's better than turning the car completely off, and it saves some gas :P

but sometimes I want the damn thing to work but it doesn't...weird thing

Well, seeing as the poster is trying to develop an information thread en masse, it sort of does apply.

I don't believe this is an effort to improve gas mileage. This is a "green" feature. People have turned off their cars manually at traffic lights for YEARS. This simply automates the process. I don't turn mine ON much, but it does seem to work very efficiently.
Wow, are you here to save the day? They are "all misinformation...?" Really? Perhaps it's just one poster that got it wrong as it applies to the NA market (though as stated before, in other markets the default is "on."). I just love the folks who jump into a thread and have to start with the "so many post and they are all wrong..."
