    I think its a smart feature to have, assuming that no additional wear happens as a result. The cost to replace worn systems on a 911 is worth lotsa fuel!

    I hope that these systems become standard on all cars. Immagine the ammount of gas saved and pollution cut if traffic hell was a silent mass of stop/start. Also a hybrid or F1 style KERS system will greatly decrease gas consumption as well. One more reason that the average car should be a mild hybrid with stop/start and EV crawling ability. But it will be embarrasing if the stop starting actually killed the engine, and you were stuck in the middle of traffic with a dead engine.. ah...

    Jpnpower, didn't the Malibu have a mild hybrid option that acheived very meager fuel economy gains? I also hope these can be improved and spread among the majority of cars.

    JEDERINO, that was very poorly executed. Of course refinement is necessary.
