      They get the high EPA MPG rating by having the auto stop/start feature on. Therefore, it has to be on by default to officially claim the MPG numbers. The vehicle has to be exactly like it was when they did the test. Otherwise, manufacturers could put high pressure skinny bike tires on, rip out the interior to save weight, and put an aero cone on front to get unrealistic high MPG numbers, but then they would have to sell the vehicle that way. You have to sell what you claim. If the buyer wants to disable high mileage features and store bags of cement in the trunk, then it's on the consumer who now can't sue complaining about the mileage

      Notwithstanding the reason for the Auto Start-Stop, there needs to be a way to default to having this non-feature to off without having to leave the rear window defroster on all the time. I bought a BMW X1 in 2013 that had this non-feature but within months BMW recognized how annoying it was to customers and issued a software update that stored the customer’s choice of OFF for the Auto Start-Stop and set that choice as default for the next time the car was started. I have contacted Subaru of America 800-782-2783 to register my extreme displeasure at the fact that there is no way to set this to default to off. If it bothers you as much as it does me, I suggest you call and register your displeasure, too. Maybe if they get enough complaints they will wake up and smell the coffee and fix this annoyance, just like BMW did.

      Helpful to see a ride from a 360 perspective when shopping for a new car online. Thanks a lot!

      i like your videos mike, they are always very informative. I just wish you had given us more about your thoughts on the ride quality and the ride noise in this car!

      Subaru's must be made for small people, because my legs have no place to go. That left foot rest is annoying. The seat needs to go back further.

      Not so reliable as you advertised. They traded the car because head gasket is going on it. That’s the truth and downfall for Subaru. Do your research Google it. I do like the car, but long term reliability sucks.

      Yeah, but it seems to be on old models only. (up to 2011's Forester)
      I "googled" it, as you said, and I didn't find anything about head gasket problems on more recent models.
      On the other hand, they do seem to still have the oil consumption problem.

      The auto start/stop paired with auto vehicle hold (AVH) make for some of the most aburpt starts I have ever experienced. The standard adaptive cruise control is amazing though, as long as you don't get the limited with the eye tracker.

      @Shane Nelson Actually the Limited does not have Driver Focus (which you call “eye tracker”). Driver Focus in only on the Touring.

      Start/stop is not only for fuel consumption, it is mainly done to reduce pollution in city's, specially in Europe, where there are more regulations for reducing pollution.

      +MikesCarInfo your voice was generally Lower then the Subaru guy, sometimes I could hear you but often it was really low. I never had problems with your previous videos or others. But I like your detailed videos so of course I will continue to watch! Also I have decent hearing so I don't need a hearing aid.

      The audio is directional so it may be louder looking in another direction.
      It sounds loud on my computer, phone, and tablet.

      The start-stop would wear the battery out faster over time would be my guess.

      And frankly, every time you start an engine, it causes a bit of wear on it; don't let anyone tell you differently.  Most people do not realize that.  I'd hate to have to nurse a start/stop equipped vehicle home or to a dealer with error codes or a failing battery.  Sorry - a BAD idea except for an electric car.

      It doesn't make sense to me when looking at the city numbers as opposed to hwy numbers city is always higher due to stop and starting. I don't see you saving that much if any shutting off the motor then kicking fuel back up to the engine quickly. I'd feel like I was using more. I'd disable it every time if not all together permanently.

      The starter has been redesigned with the stop start in mind. The battery is also larger to compensate for it as well.

      +Dave McGuigan i don't know about the forester, but every other car usually has a switch to turn the start/stop off.

      Also wear out the starter quicker. I don't like it and glad my 18 Crosstrek doesn't have it! I think there should be a switch to turn it off completely, not every time you start it!

      It's certainly engaging. It would need to be sharper than this though. I'm not sure what's going on here because YouTube reports high res up to 1440s60 but the image is very soft, lacking detail.
