I couldn't find the TLX manual on the Acura website. In the "owners" section, there is a place to download an owners manuals, but the TLX is not listed yet.Since the driver's manual is out, maybe someone can go check if the TLX has it. (I think someone in another forum said it has. Didn't verify it myself.
That's a great catch. The lower button on the gear selector is labeled IDS. Idle Stop? That seems likely it's there to disable as you said. If you can easily turn idle stop on/off when desired, that would turn the feature into a positive for me. Maybe the Acura engineers did get this car right!looking at interior pictures, the button on the bottom of the gear selector looks suspiciously like the Auto Start Stop (ASS) on/off button on current BMW's. If that's the case, then it's something the driver can disable.

Welcome to the Forum! I see this is your first post.I just took delivery of a new SH-AWD Advance two days ago. I can say unequivocally that this is a PITA feature. I don't like it at all. The motion when it finally disengages when accelerating from a stop is totally unnerving. Very jerky. I can't believe it's at all healthy for the transmission. As has been posted, there is a console control to disable the feature, but it reverts back to enabled whenever the ignition is turned off. Remembering to disable it every time you start the car is necessary. If anyone hears of a permanent way to disable this feature, I'd like to hear it. And for those who have asked, this feature is part of a "package". It's not an individual feature/accessory you order with the vehicle. If you buy a SH-AWD, you're stuck with it.....
