ESS arguably can have an effect on engine longevity, so mention of it in this thread is logical.Because every frickin' thread on this forum has some apparently obligation to have someone to make a negative comment about ESS regardless of how relevant it is to the subject at hand. I'm so sick of hearing about it. People need to grow up and just press the button 6" from the start button you're already having to press to start your vehicle or pay the 200-some bucks to buy a gadget that will press the button for you. Bunch of snowflakes on here constantly moaning about a system that's fully disabled with one simple button press.
Some don't understand why people get upset about ESS. I also have to wonder about those who get upset about those who get upset about ESS.
Whether complaining about the system or complaining about people, aren't you still just a "snowflake" complaining? Just as easily as you can push that ESS button you can click Ignore on users like me?
