If it shut off anyway then what difference does it make?

I don't see the difference or why it matters if the car shuts off either way, Ford did something different, so it shuts off when you open the door instead of hitting the brake, I'd rather have that than the tease of sitting down getting all situated and then having to restart the car cause I hit the brake.

I get what you're saying, but I don't understand this thread, it seems like most of these guys didn't know the car was supposed to shut off, and if they do I don't see why they're upset that the car shut off a different way if it was going to shut off anyway.
