Cadillac XT5 2018

Asked by Jan 11, 2019 at 12:46 AM about the 2018 Cadillac XT5 Luxury FWD

Question type: General

Why is the 2018 xt5 the only car in which you cannot turn off the stop/start
feature ?  other Cadillacs have a switch to control the stop/start. Why not
the xt5 ?  Does Cadillac think that I do not have the sense to select whether  
I want it on or  off ? And they put a selector switch in the 2019 models.
I wish Cadillac would make it an option to permanently disconnect it, or
at  least offer a solution. Makes me sorry I bought the 2018 xt5.  I'm waiting
for some bright young fellow to figure how to do this, and offer a kit.

$140 defeat system already on the market for the XT5. The problem, (Typical Communism) Dr. Tao says, is that the stopping and restarting is rather intrusive. “You actually feel it restarting,” he said. “In terrible stop-and-go traffic this thing comes on and off constantly. In 20 minutes you can have 50 stop-and-start cycles. It can drive you totally insane.”
