Yes. There is a button to disable it but it must be done every trip.
Well, ****. Is there a value to turn it off with a OBD tool? This is a major downside to me that might sway me more towards the Hyundai SC. My Chevy Cruze has it and it makes me so mad.

Same here its so weird, my dads f150 does it and I think the motor is acting up every time. When I'm on my motorcycle and cars do it at stop lights its even worse. :LOL:

According to Ford both Hybrid and EgoBoost Mavericks will have auto start/stop (under Mechanical in spec/trim page).

If it really bugs you having to do it manually, and you don't want a Forscan (Ford software) solution, these folks (Ford Auto Start-Stop Disable | Autostop Eliminator) will probably offer one soon for around $100 for the Maverick. Personally I push the button to off after starting my F150.

Interesting, I would never have thought about it… I’ve drove 2 different hybrids for a total of 12 years… never bothered me once when the engine shut off at the stop light… but then again, did love 35mpg…

Well I am not looking at the hybrid. I am considering the 2.0T vs the Santa Cruz 2.5T. My Chevy Cruze has it and its pretty noticeable and makes it feel rough. On a hybrid with electric to take over I bet it isn't too bad.

The difference is that with a hybrid when the engine shuts off you still have electric motive power immediately at your disposal upon takeoff regardless of whether or how long the gas engine starts up. Secondly, with a hybrid you have an electric HVAC heat pump so that your AC doesn't go all warm and stale on you every time your engine shuts off.

I don’t care for it in our Audi, but have learned it can be defeated by how you modulate the brake pedal.
I hate it in our Alfa Romeo. Hardly noticed it was there with our Eco-Sport (neither Eco nor Sport, though.) On my hybrids I wouldn't know sometimes if not for the indicator in the instrument cluster.
Funny how some cars get it right and others can't. Hybrids being an exception.

On our F150, we disable the stop/start by unhooking a wire under the dash just above the brake pedal. This is used for brake and turn signals for a towed trailer, and no effect at all on the truck when there is no attached trailer. Just have to remember to replug the connector whenever at trailer is attached. I think it fakes out the system to believe that there is a trailer attached, which disables the stop/start.

But does it void the factory warranty?

LOL, I almost did a "LIKE" to my own post...LOL
Yea I had never seen it before her car..If you're trying to creep into a place like a garage it will shut off and on,, Drives me crazy... I guess if I start the car with the hood open it disconnects it for the drive only...lol screw that
Now Chevy's AFM system has made me so mad at that stupidity I'll probably never buy another chevy... and it's only good for about 1mpg in the city and it makes the motor unreliable or at least your always worried you'll be one of those whose engine loses a lifter and takes out the cam or starts to burn oil or some other side effect of the AFM.. screw chevy and I'm a GM guy...
