It's something that needs to be there, if you do get into stop-n-go traffic.
But, I think it might default to ON when you start up in the driveway.
I live out in the Boston Burbs, and there isn't any road near me that doesn't
lead to a long string of traffic lights.
In about 75% if my stops at lights, the line is short. It's normally one light cycle.
In the remaining 25% of light stops, it's mostly two cycles to get past it.
Hardly ever get a three light cycle wait.
Once stopped at a light, creeping forward is rare, but happens if you have a right-on-red.
Mostly, you just sit in one spot and wait.. Watching your MPG average drop..
I have used manual
ISG at times (while driving alone) and it's not all that smooth. But, it does work.
I think ISG is going to work for us. If not.?. We might be using the disable switch a lot..
The bowladrome is 3 miles from me. Three lights, one with an extra long cycle.
That's a round trip we make once a week.
My wife makes a couple of daily trips around town. If she goes 10 or 20 miles, she likely will
be stopped at lights, 8 or 10 times. That's a lot of idle time.
