Just picked up y 2016 GLA250. All good, but the auto shut off. Is it possible to turn it off?
I'm pretty sure there has been extensive chat about this subject and the conclusion was, no, it can't be turned off permenantly.I understood what you meant. Can't be done by the driver accessing the available driver interface. But there may be a hidden way of doing it... A MB factory trained mechanic will know if there is a way.
I don't mind it either. In fact, when I get to a stoplight now and the engine doesn't turn off, I briefly release the brake pedal, and when I step on it again, the engine usually stops.I must be the only person here who doesn't mind it. I have previously driven hybrids that did the same thing, so maybe I'm just used to it. With the hybrid your brain is trained to interpret it as a good thing because it means you're on batteries.
But when you start the car it still defaults to Comfort mode and you have to select the Individual mode again.Yes you can disable it permanently. Just use the Individual drive mode and configure it to your taste, only setting the Eco thing OFF.
2016 GLA 250 with all options.
