    The Buick start/stop is actually one of the best in the industry. I've driven many cars in Europe where this is more common, and they are all inferior. The Buick engine was designed keeping this feature in mind. It works very well in the Buick (I'm basing this on three test drives). You're right, though, you can't turn it off.

    But what I really like is the G80 auto/stop or whatever that feature is called when you stop at a stoplight and push the button and take your foot off the brakes. That should be standard in every luxury car!

    My BMW has the auto/stop and I hate it and turned it off. This is the auto makers way to increase the mpg for city driving by a few tenths of a mile. In my opinion not worth it because of the drain on the battery and severe duty on the starting system

    I test drove a Caddy CTS-4 2.0T. It was a decent test drive, and I came to a stop light. The salesman was talking to me, and as I pressed the gas to go BAM! I felt like I had been rear ended! There was nothing in the rear view mirror. I asked him "WTH was that?
    "Oh, that's just the auto stop system" he said.

    Test drive over!

    Cadillac in big trouble - haven't seen a new one on the streets in No Va in years.

    Used to be Cadillac was like Buick == always a reliable choice if you didn't really want to buy something from Germany or Korea
