I purchased my Pacifica in Delaware,where I reside for 4 months every year. Primary residence ,drivers licence,car registration etc so on
are ,and have been Florida.Chrysler (Mopar) warranties say due to Fl. regulations ,warranty must be purchased thru a Florida dealer.Florida dealer warranties are much more expensive .Therefor Chrysler will not deal with me thru their site. Will have to canvas Fl. dealers in Oct. when I return .Thanks for the input.

I read here somewhere that there's a device sold that disables ESS but I just push the bitton manually every time. I'm not concerned with ESS reliability, I just loathe the van shutting off at stops.

Much in agreement with you.My daily commutes would actually have 20 more restarts than normal.

Honestly, at first I thought the manual bypass was going to be a constant pain in the buns, but it's quickly become a simple routine. Press button to start, check the mirrors, fasten seatbelt, press the ESS Kill Switch. No worries, no money spent on a solution.

SmartStopStart. Kinda pricey, but customers like it.

Check out the reviews on the new eTorque system FCA is using on the RAM 1500s (including the 3.6L Pentastar V6). Very slick. Its technically considered a mild hybrid, but the cost is probably very similar to the current ESS system in our Pacifica. Not only would it make ESS not noticeable, but it improves fuel economy even more than the current system because it uses a mild form of regenerative braking along with electric motor torque to help you off the line and when the transmission shifts/downshifts. Maybe in the 2020 model.

It's called gentle rib poking humor, SBC. I thought it was clever.

For the first time yesterday, I saw those metal straws at Walmart. I blanched at the thought of some child sipping his juicy cup while riding in his safety seat, and Mommy makes a sudden emergency stop, and the environmentally friendly metal straw rams through his gullet. But it is cleanable and reusable. (That's called snarky satire.)

Blind decisions by advocacy groups often have unintended consequences. ESS has some problems too. Extra parts and batteries have to be manufactured for the vehicle at an environmental cost. The engine itself emits an extra puff of exhaust when it restarts, often after a very short down time (I know, I drive a Pacifica). How long before the down time compensates for the restart pollution? I'm pretty sure sure these question are of minor consideration to the manufacturers compared to the sales benefit of 1-2 MPG shown on the Monroney sticker.

They did it to meet mandatory MPG standards, not to save the planet.
