Anyone unhappy with supersensitive stop/start?

Post by Digitalracer » Tue Dec 03, 2019 11:33 am

With my DSG, the slightest release of pressure on the brake pedal and the engine fires up again, so annoying having to stand on the pedal constantly. Whereas my partner's Volvo the engine doesn't restart til you touch the accelerator, so much better. Is there any reconfiguration?

Unfortunately it’s a standard time / feature on all VAG cars. I had an Audi A3 DSG and it was the same and no adjustments are possible.

Tbh, i dont mind it. Id previous said how i felt my dsg jump on the odd pull away. Bit of figuring out sometimes you an take foot off brake and pull away to fast it will jump. So now when i see opposite lights change i just move the steering wheel a tad to start. By time im ready to go its much smoother. Just adjusting to it

But yes sometimes it cuts out and id rather it not.

It's just that it needs such a hard press constantly, the slightest ease off and it starts up again which defeats the object. Not easy when you have Rheumatoid Arthritis which is why I chose DSG. It would have been so much better if it stayed switched off until you touch the accelerator as in the Volvo. This is my first experience of stop/start.

I just switch the stop/start off with the switch on the dash each time I set off... Personally, I think it is much over rated , causes more wear to the starting components, and probably causes more emissions on start up than saved by ticking over..!...just my view..!
