Not trying to be a smarta$$, but don't you adjust your driving based on what you're driving. You wouldn't drive a 22 foot moving truck the way you drive a sports car and you wouldn't drive a sports car like you would drive some of the old boat Caddys or Buicks.

Lets hope this does not become another YASST (yet another start stop thread) !


In the 2 years the vehicle is out i have not seen a complaint of starter failure ...seen a couple of battery failures on this forum that are suspected on SS.

I use to have a 2016 2nd gen cruze. In that forum not a single issue with the starter for SS. A few battery issues. One was somehow it had the wrong battery installed. The other was from a bad cell. GM is going forward on newer models and installing the shut off for the SS.

Sorry, I just get aggravated with the comments that you have to adjust your driving because of Start/Stop.

I get aggravated that there is no hand crank option anymore...when you are far out there and your battery decide to give up the ghost

I like the Black Package; similar to the Redline Package on my Equinox.

I don't know if you like fender stripes or not, but I think a black fender hash stripe would complement the looks of the Black Package theme.

Something like this only in black on your Terrain.

I used to like the option of pushing to about 5 mph, jump in and put tranny in 1st gear, let the clutch out out and engine starts.....

My brother and I actually tried this a couple of times on his old corvair.
It works much better if you turn on the ignition first.

Indeed i remember forgetting to put the ignition on a few times and wondering why it is not working..especially when i was trying to impress somebody...
i found 2nd gear easier though as you need to declutch and clutch back quickly and in 1st you have to be flash gordon to achieve starting the engine without it sputtering off immediately.
