My dad has a '12 Mercedes c220 diesel auto with start/stop. it works nicely, shuts off often and if you let go of the brake it starts. It has no lurching.

The flipside is that in finland we don't idle really long at the lights compared to cities in Germany, or US.

In my car, I shut the engine off manually, starters are not expensive for my car but a second battery could help with the auxiliaries
