Our first ESS system is on order right now, nothing like that on our old JK's so I'll be interested in how this thread pans out. Is it really that annoying on normal driving to have the engine shut off and restart and if so, wouldn't we get used to just pushing the button ?
Perhaps Jeep intentionally installed this just so we could hear all the nice compliments from the other drivers better at the lights ?
For me it’s a non issue. It’s also tied to how hard you are pressing the brake (at least on my 2018) when you stop so it’s completely doable to actually never engage it or restart the engine without taking your foot off the brake pedal.

Or you could go get hit by a nasty hailstorm :(.

Ever since I got whacked by the hailstorm last week my ESS has not worked. Not sure why, but it hasn't kicked on a single time since then.
