Takes 7 seconds for you to start saving gas. I like the system in the Kodiaq as I can come to a stop super smooth as I don’t have the engine/dsg trying to crawl forward. Annoying in town and when the engines not warm, but I’ll just flick the switch when I need to.
Zach, surely when the engine's not warm the stop/start doesn't activate? Isn't that one of the conditions for it to become operative? 🤔
I’ve had the car turn the engine off a few times after driving around 300m from a cold start going to a junction near my house. So I usually just tap the accelerator pedal to restart it.

Interesting! My stop/start doesn't cut in until the engine is up to temperature. Perhaps there's a difference between DSG and Manual?

You can also restart the engine in anticipation of moving off by giving the steering wheel a 'tweak' in either direction.

Is that only on DSG? 🤔

I must try it on my "wiggly stick". 😕

Should work on a wiggly stick. I had a 2015 manual Seat Leon FR with the 1.4 ACT engine and tugging the steering restarted the engine.

No idea, haven't driven a manual Kodiaq.

Sorry, don't know. Haven't had to 'stir the pudding' for about 20 years. Traffic in Poole/Bournemouth so bad (and left knee) that 'wiggly sticks' are a complete no-no for me.

Just checked the full online manual - the stop/start shouldn't switch in until the engine's warm.

Thank you Colin, I've just tried it and the steering wheel jiggle does restart the engine on my "wiggly stick" just like it does on the DSGs. Not that I'm ever likely to remember to use it, because I have no problem with the "pressing the clutch" method to restart the engine.

Hi all. Very interesting reading.

In my Kodiaq, the auto start/stop remembers my previous selection.

That is, if I turned this feature off, on my next drive, I have to turn it back on should I want it.

So in theory, you don't need to reverse code it, just leave it off and turn it on when you want?

Am I missing something or is that not a standard thing across the range?
