Fair point. i was just slightly curious.Clearly in a crash scenario, it is plausible the engine might be running at revs, and it might be desirable to be able to turn it off.
I suspect wanting to turn it off while moving is less desirable.
Bi-polar or not, I'm not the twat that ****ed about with the start/stop button of a vehicle moving at 70mph! No amount of 'up thine own arse' posts from you can ever change that fact. You sir, are full of FAIL!! :chuckle:Fair point. i was just slightly curious.
Its just the input of certain people with stupid comments that SLIGHTLY AGITATES ME!
Ah at last a rational reason, thanks.all start/stop button cars have the same feature. it's in case the throttle sticks and you have no other way of shutting down the car. there was a horrific crash in the US last year where a father couldn't stop his car. throttle was jammed. he was on the phone with the police screaming for help. and no one knew how to shut the thing down.
better to have a car that can suddenly be shut off at speed, than one that you can't shutoff in an emergency.

Your brakes should last long enough to stop the car if you brake immediately? And the non-servoed brakes should still work, but you have to press REALLY hard, likewise the non-power assisted steering.can't be restarted. i already confirmed this locally a while back. the only thing you can do is use the handbrake to slow yourself down once you've shut the car down.
hazard lights, windows down hand waving frantically. it is after all for the ultimate emergency and not every contingency can be dealt with. this is the price you pay with auto gearboxes, the computer is in charge.Your brakes should last long enough to stop the car if you brake immediately?

The problem would be if it happened in the fast lane of a motorway and you really needed to restart the engine...
