: Stop-Start on A3 Tdi :-(

03-01-2011, 01:22 PM
Have had my 2010 A3 2.0 Tdi now for almost 6 months. Good (if not great) car but one thing really irritates me.

My car has stop-start which is great in theory (cuts Co2, road tax etc) but mine has a habit of cutting out when you pull up and take it out of gear (fine) but the re-starting 30sec-a minute later of its own accord without any provocation. Find myself just sitting at the lights waiting for it to judder into life - not good, especially as it doesn't this all the time.

Anyone else with a stop-start A3 have this issue?
