They don't have to make it hard to turn off. As I understand it the primary difference for receiving credit is whether it is latching (preserves state across start ups) or nonlatching (needs to be enabled every time the car is started). It's based on the assumed typical mode for how the vehicle will operate. So with a button that carries over across starts, the assumption is that more drivers will simply turn it off. Beyond that as far as I can tell, they get no "extra credit" for making a nonlatching system more inconvenient to turn off.Yeah, but that was edtx's question: why is Subaru making it more difficult to turn S/S off than other manufacturers to temporarily disable it? Most people would be MUCH happier with a dedicated dash button, or a shortcut on the top meny if the screen.
