I don't want to speak for them, but many people are of the opinion that the etorque system adds complexity that could and probably will have issues down the road. Just more things to break after the warranty expires, which means they'd be paying to repair a system they don't want. Especially if the type of driving you do doesn't include a lot of city type driving. For me, etorque didn't save me any fuel because I don't really have any long stop lights or stop signs on my daily commute. The etorque system gives your vehicle stop/start, which is really the only part of it that can save fuel. But again, only if you regularly sit at a stop for any length of time. I had etorque on my last truck, and I bought a device to turn stop/start off until I wanted to turn it back on.so I am ignorant but the idea of an e-torque is good. So enlighten a lost soul, why so down on e-torque?
I don’t know the cost but if it’s just a dollar it’s too much for me. It’s a system I’ll never use so why should I pay to have it installed, face repair costs, not if, but when, it fails. Even if I don’t use it it’s integrated into the operating system. When one of its components, most likely it’s dedicated batteries, fail I’ll have to stand the repair costs of something I don’t want and don’t use.How much does it cost to replace the battery and other parts of the etorque system ?
