Reaching across to the other side of the car to switch it off isn't a brilliant idea as it takes your attention away from the point where you should be concentrating due to the surrounding and approaching traffic.

I am really pleased with the fuel economy, and that is with always turning the start/stop OFF.
Given the amount of fuel I would save it isn’t worth me using it, I can understand the reluctance to use it on entering a busy roundabout. I am seldom in stop start traffic, so I am not being too environmentally unfriendly.
I sometimes forget, and with practice can easily reach down and locate the switch without taking my eyes off the road when safe to do so.

Hardly the other side of the car :D

I'm with you however on lane assist, the odd time when it tries to counter you following the correct path or moving round an obstacle. I have taught misses how to switch the disable by feel (right hand steering switches, right one, down one, press middle.)

It is the other side of the car when you have arthritis everywhere! Might as well be on the moon some days.

Just twist the steering wheel a fraction when you stop and the engine re starts. I do this at busy junctions so I’m ready to go for that tight gap. ;)

Tried this yesterday after reading here, and now I know why my SS often restarted early :-) This is new compared to the Tig which doesn't do this.

Yes, mines facelift mk1, I'm guessing yours is mk2 and it was added in. Steering hard as hell till I take my foot off brake, engine starts and wheel moves.

So, oldie but goody, just wiggle the steering a fraction, barely move it,, as you come to a stop, and it'll not stop, or restart straight away.

I am keeping mine switched off! Hadn't noticed that the T6 reacted to steering wheel movement and I had the stop start running on that for longer. Nothing can persuade me to reinstate it on either vehicle.
