I liked it here in Miami too, but I can't risk anything happening. Sometimes I sit through 5 cycles of lights before getting through, so any gas savings is good.Man thats crazy that a system designed to save you very little money on gas can actually leave you stranded. Specially on a vehicle designed to be taken to remote places. Scary. I like the ESS system here in LA it makes a difference, but not worth the risk imo for those of us who take our jeeps to the wilderness!
I live out in an agricultural area, so I need it to be somewhat reliable. ESS is just a stupid bandaid for an easily solved problem.
