Re: Hold n Go

When I picked up my Limited in April I believe the salesman mentioned this when we were going through the menus & I selected it. Think it was called "hill hold" or something; anyway it does work. If selected, on any kind of an upward incline (love it on the boat ramps) when you take your foot off the brake to move it to the accelerator the Jeep will not roll backwards! Try it! Great with my boat, I don't recall now many seconds it "holds" the jeep, but it is plenty of time to get to the gas pedal. I absolutely love it! Dave

Re: Hold n Go

I could have sworn I had a "Hill Start Assist" option somewhere in my RA4 menu. have not looked for it since I last upgraded the radio programming so maybe it disappeared. Sounds the same as "Hold N Go" .. maybe marketing got ahead of the programmers??

Hill Start Assist (HSA) is not the same as Hold N Go. HSA only works when you are starting to move from a full stop on inclines greater than 6%. It will hold the brakes for you for up to 3 seconds while you shift your foot from brake to the accelerator pedal to avoid rollback and will only disengage the brakes once you're pumping enough torque to the drivetrain (it's pretty weird to feel this work as you press on the accelerator and the car doesn't move). Hold N Go will keep your vehicle stationary once you bring it to a full stop until you touch the accelerator pedal. This feature is useful while waiting, for example, at a traffic light as you can bring the vehicle to a stop and then take your foot off the brake. To my knowledge, there is currently no JGC with this feature available.

Re: Hold n Go

This HOLD N GO seems to be a precursor for the future ENGINE START STOP technology to be introduced as an additional fuel saving method.
