Well, it's a good issue. First, I HATE the start/stop mode. When I got the car, I set up an INDIVIDUAL Drivers Mode that turns OFF the Start/Stop feature. Everytime you get in the car, it reverts to COMFORT mode which turns the Start/Stop mode ON. Everytime I started the car, I would push the Drivers Mode button a few times to get to INDIVIDUAL mode (which also had some changes to brakes and steering)
I was away over the winter and was driving another car without Start/Stop mode and kind of forgot about it when I returned to my XC40. A few weeks later I noticed the Start/Stop mode was never activated when I started the car and upon checking, I was in COMFORT mode. Now I did have a systems upgrade, The only time the Start/Stop mode comes on is if I push the button on the console.

Is my car "broken" for the good! Or did Volvo change something? I thought they defaulted to Start/Stop as a gas saver method to bump up their EPA mileage rating. Very confused. What is everyone else experiencing?

My XC40 T5 R-Design has an on/off switch on the Sensus to activate or deactivate the start/ stop function regardless of what mode or profile is being used. This may be different for different countries however depending on you location. I have mine deactivated as I do not like it and it stays deactivated regardless of who's profile or what mode is being used.

I noticed that if I don't drive my car for a while.. the car won't perform the start/stop feature . I think it has to do with the battery not having enough charge to fulfill normal operation while temporarily turning off. I'm pretty sure after you run it for a while and the alternator kicks in , it will resume. At least that's been my experience.

On our R-Design, we turned the Start stop off in the Sensus settings. But every time we start the time it default back to start stop unless you select dynamic mode. I like comfort mode and hate the start stop. So frustrating. The first 2 weeks it was working fine, but since then, not anymore.
