IDK, would it really be that harmful to the starter to shut off more. I think I read somewhere that in other countries, some Focii has auto off/on at stoplights to save gas, and the only reason we don't get that is because Americans would think there is something wrong with the car when it did that since we weren't used to it. I think I also read it may be coming soon, since people are now more understanding of it with all the hybrids roaming around now.

Anyway, I like the idea of disabling the auto off, but I would definitely only remote start the car if it were in my driveway, and not in some mall parking lot or something.
