    Just one more wax question.

    Automatic Stop and Start

    I just bought a 2016 Jeep Cherokee that turns off the engine when you stop and then restarts when you start out again. I spoke to my mechanic and he says I will burn out my starter prematurely. Anyone know anything about it, and will it improve my MPG? Thanks guys
