I don't think that feature was disabled on the MKC, but it was that MKC drivers were turning the car off while driving, so the car knows not to shift into park while the car is still moving.

Ah, OK, that's something else. I thought somebody else mentioned that this particular feature wasn't available anymore on the MKC.

BTW, when my uncle visited us 6 weeks ago, he rented a GMC Yukon. Over the two weeks he had that rental, it happened twice that he accidentally turned off the engine while driving because the start/stop button was very close to other switches. I have no clue why they didn't disable a shut-off while NOT in P. To me, that sounds quite dangerous.

So problems with this button seem to occur more often than we think..

Current rides:
2017 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid Black Label
2017 Audi Q7 Prestige

If that is the case why don't they move the start/stop button to the left of the steering wheel?

I would love them to use a similar design to Aston Martin's push button transmission design as Jose suggested in one of his previous post .

^It's definitely sweet, but I think Ford and its various products have received enough criticism about Aston-mimicking haha!
