The Trax, like a lot of cars these days has Stop-Start to boost fuel economy. I have been averaging around 48mpg, which I think is pretty decent for any SUV in everyday driving situations.
The Trax also has another stop-start system which I can’t quite work out. Over the last six days I have stalled it at least eight times. Which is eight more than I have stalled any other car this year.
It seems to happen at low speed, then the Chevrolet is winding down to a standstill. I Put my foot on the clutch as I brake and then, well, the engines dies!
No idea what is going on but it can be very disconcerting, especially if I have the DAB radio on and can’t hear the engine noise. Today I tried to pull away at a junction and absolutely nothing happened.
It’s the only black spot on a very willing, if rather noisy drivetrain.
