I also have a Range Rover that has ESS and it is also smooth start. My JLUR is not bad either.
Thanks for the HONEST reply.
I think you have a lot of nerve implying anyone here is dishonest. Your virtue-signaling is the only dishonest post here. You drive a Jeep; if you're that concerned about the planet then you should be pedaling or walking. Liar, ENOUGH SAID.

Question can someone be honest and say why they DONT like the ESS system. It sounds like that most complaints is the starter which is FALSE.
I don’t mind the ESS, but after hearing from you I’m going with the Tazer ESS defeat and a full DEF delete. Impeach that Tesla.

I sure can, I don’t believe it will wear out the starter or put undue stress on any component but here in Houston it stays pretty warm and balmy with high humidity and to pull up to a stop and have the A/C shut down while sitting at a light, I know ESS is supposed to keep the Jeep running if heating or cooling but it seems for at least me it always shuts down.

Because the Jeep is my property and I want ESS disabled. Full Stop. No other reason is needed.

Wow, a lot of Vapor and Angst over a simple button. How hard is it to just push for "Off" ?
Push for "On" ? I do that reflexively now, no Tazer or Temper Tantrum for actually controlling how the vehicle functions...but then, roll up windows, key operated door locks aren't an issue either...

Question, why do people dislike the ESS? ... ..., if it saves 1 gallon of gas a year just maybe our kids kids will have an Earth to live on.
I don't like it because there's a delay when starting. I know they say it's supposed to be seamless, and there isn't supposed to be a delay, but to me it feels like there's just a slight delay. And really, there probably is. Normally you take you foot of the brake and you start to idle forward, but with ESS there's a fraction of a second delay while it needs to restart.
Am I in that big of a hurry where the fraction of a second matters? No, but I just don't like the feel of it. And as someone else had mentioned, I've had old cars that wouldn't restart if they died, so yeah, it's a little psychological too. If my vehicle is running, I want it to keep running.

...I believe in the law of conservation of matter: ....
Science backs this opinion.
