Ya, I've tried it with my Jetta TDI as well, and what worried me the most is difference in steering effort between engine off and engine running... bump-starting in a curve would cause me to nearly swerve out of my lane due to the difference in effort. A nice long straight = no problem... curvy = Yikes!
