My guess, very few. Otherwise Ford would not even consider the option to turn it off.

I'd be curious, how many owners who have this start-stop really like it?
I think I'd rather be without it, but then again, I can't recall the last time it actually cut in. Probably a couple of months ago, I think.

I don't mind it to much but like Peter, it often doesn't cut in.

A bigger question for me is how much gas does it really save. My guess is not much. Plus I've heard these are battery killers.

And starters

Mine has never cut in, I installed an autostop eliminator in the dealership new car prep lane while the finance dept was getting the paperwork ready.

Only reason why its an option its because of the chip shortage, otherwise, they wouldve never consider it. They prefer getting their higher EPA ratings.

Ordered 2022 Timberline
On my 22 Timberline order, I added the code 52X, which eliminates the auto start/stop. I'm not a fan of auto start stop. My 2019 F150 2.7 has it and I turn it off every time I drive it
