Re: Anybody use Hold 'n Go?

I got to use it over the holiday when in a neighbor hood with a bunch of lights and stuff that was pact full with cars. When you enable it (the way I've found to do it is first turn on cruise control, then ACC). It will creep along based on the car in front of you. If the car in front comes to a complete stop so will you. It will not re-start itself though. To get going again you tap the accelerator and it goes back to doing what it was doing. One thing to watch out for is corners. The traffic we were in bent to the left around a corner in the neighbor hood (which was more like a large circle). The car in front was not in scanning range when it went left of the car and the TH leaped forward, because it thought it was in the clear.

Other then that we took it on a 7 hour drive to see family and the adaptive cruise control worked very well. I usually set it higher then what traffic was running and had the car in front of me dictate the speed. Worked like a charm, along with the lane departure and blind spot monitoring I felt like I could have taken a nap. lol

Re: Anybody use Hold 'n Go?

Hold 'n go is when you are going up a hill and have to stop.
When you let off the brake to go the brakes stay on giving you time to gas it.
So you don't coast back into the car behind you thats 2'' off your rear!

Re: Anybody use Hold 'n Go?

What we've been discussing is called "hill start assist".

Requires the vehicle to be in gear and atleast. 7% grade. It's automatic. Doesn't have an option to turn on/off

When you remove your foot from the brake it will continue to apply pressure for a few moments while you switch your foot to the accelerator preventing the car from rolling back. Page 459 of my manual.

No, were discussing hold n go. People are confusing it with ACC and HSA. HnG works all the time, regardless of incline, can be turned off and on, and was originally listed in the owners manual but has since been removed.
Also HSA can be turned off.

Re: Anybody use Hold 'n Go?

Allows you to take your foot off the brake in gear, like at a stoplight or drive thru, once you come to a stop.
I can see why they'd remove it. The uconnect software currently has some bugs, and this could cause big safety issues if it released and someone unknowingly rolled into another car or worse, busy intersection.

Has anybody done it? I don't even know if I have it, and couldn't see where to enable it.

Cheers,

I think it's called "Uphill assist" now in the settings. The dealer told me it's good for things like boat ramps, ect.

Hill Start Assist is what you are talking about, Hold n Go is different.
