Re: Anybody use Hold 'n Go?

The available Adaptive Cruise Control system boasts a feature called Stop and Go, which allows it to bring the vehicle to a complete stop when the car ahead does and then resume moving forward when the road ahead clears.

I don't know if it is actually available.

Re: Anybody use Hold 'n Go?

Yes, I have that. Haven't worked up the nerve to try it out yet. Maybe after I get a bit more run time and the snow clears...

Re: Anybody use Hold 'n Go?

Just received a resposne from Jeep regarding Hold 'n go:
Quote:
I am glad to read of your interest in Jeep.

I think you may have been reading the owner's manuals for two completely
different vehicle models.

The Hold 'n Go is not a feature offered on the 2014 Jeep Cherokee at
this time.

The The Hold 'n Go is, however, a feature offered on the 2014 Jeep Grand
Cherokee.
? Hold ?n Go?
When this feature is selected, the vehicle will automatically hold its
position when it comes to a stop and it allows you to remove your foot
from the brake pedal while stopped and the vehicle is in drive. It can
be activated or deactivated in the EVIC menu system.

We encourage you to stay posted with your preferred Jeep dealership or
the Jeep Product Information Center periodically for future vehicle
updates. Please feel free to sign up for updates on the Jeep brand by

Comments:
A version of the 2014 Jeep Cherokee manual mentions the Hold 'n Go
feature;
however, a later version does not mention it. Is Hold 'n Go a feature
that
is currently available on the 2014 Cherokee?

So it looks like they had a misprint in the first manual and it doesnt exist. Thought so.
Thanks for the update.

I have to smile reading this thread. Jaguar Cars ( where I was an apprentice in the late 50's ) had this feature on the auto gearbox cars called the 'anti-creep device'. This simple system relied on a solenoid closing to retain brake pressure in the rear brake line. A touch on the throttle cleared the solenoid and you were good to go.

I must say I was rather apprehensive when I first saw the electric parking brake on my test drive of the Cherokee. A couple of years back I rented a Vauxhall (GM) car in England with such a system. The problem was it had a manual shift and I never could work out how to do a hill start. One needed three legs! There was no HSA. On one occasion, I had to let the car roll back slowly and turn across the street before engaging gear and proceeding.

Re: Anybody use Hold 'n Go?

So I just want to say I got my Limited on Friday and it has Stop and Go.

Not Hold and go. Let me describe how it works and you can decide for yourself if it matches some of the things in the thread so far.

Before I start, I have used this now several times this weekend in traffic and on the highway.

I turn on the Automatic adjusting Speed Control that senses the distance of the vehicle in front of me and keeps that distance. I am not able to engage this until I have exceeded 20 MPH.

Once I have engaged this, I am able to keep this distance regardless of speed and will go all the way down to a complete stop without any interaction by the driver.

If a complete stop is achieved, the gas pedal my be tapped in order to start moving again, but after the tap you do not need to do anything else except steer as normal.

This will stay this way unless you disengage this with hitting the brake or cancel.

I maintained this over a 30 mile drive and only had to tap the gas twice to get going again on the highway during a typical rush hour in Denver.

Take this info as you see fit, but this is how it works for me what I use it in my Cherokee Limited.

Thanks!!

Re: Anybody use Hold 'n Go?

yes that is part of the Adaptive Cruse Control. Dont be scared of it, it works fine and is awesome on long trips (used my for 600 miles) Set it to long range if your super scared. the problem I see with using this in traffic like city is that you set your speed like cruse. If it detects someone in front of you it will slow you down based on Cruse set speed and distance to stop. That being said if you change lanes and nothing is in front of you but stop lights it will lurch ahead like you were on open freeway and no one is in front of you. This would be bad.

I have never tried to engage this at slower speed, only on the highway.
