Anyone else get frequent errors with the start-stop system now it's getting colder? It doesn't happen every time I get in the car but seems to be as often as not...

Yep have had since new.
If I switch the engine off and on again it clears it so havnt been too worried.
Did take it to garage with record of times dates and they said they couldn't see any recorded faults...

I was going to plug Carista in at the weekend to see if there was anything logged, Sounds like it might not be worth it!

The Start Stop system is too overzealous in my view. It can cut off engine just as you are about to launch into a busy roundabout. I've learnt to keep a bigger distance Tovar in front and creep slowly forward.
All these bugs can be adjusted if Seat chose to make some software updates.

I keep auto hold off and when I anticipate an opening coming up, lifting my foot off the brake a little starts the engine. I think wiggling the steering wheel starts it up too.

I find When I come to roundabouts if I just gently press the brakes to a stop the auto hold kicks in but the engine keeps running.

I have found been on a gradient makes a difference to when it cuts in or out. Mine is a DSG and I have only had it a few days so still working out the bugs. My 05 5F Leon does similar thing

There are many variables that prevent stop start from working. Temperatures is one of them. The car will check voltage of the battery and if it cant perform the stop start it wont do so. If you have ac on heated rear window and more consumables it wont work.
