ECO Start/ Stop

I have just bought a 2018 GLA 250 it has 11,000 miles on it. I wanted to ask about the ECO feature that shuts down the engine when you are stopped.
If I use it all the time will it cause a problem down the road as I put more miles on the car. I know many here have had their GLA's for many years and is it still working the way its supposed to.

Welcome @fullermt53 I have about 83K miles on mine, so far so good. My wife hates this feature. And I think many don't like it.

From the opposite end of the spectrum, if you don't drive your GLA often, days between use, the auxiliary battery it works from does not stay charged and the feature stops working. There is a very large volume of community discussion on this topic in our Search feature (upper right of most browsers), just type "eco start/stop" for numerous threads and posts.
