I have asked the dealer here in town to explain what the Hill assist function does, they could not. Can anyone explain what it does? I see that it can be disabled but I would like to know exactly what it does before I change anything.
If you have to stop on a hill, when it is turned on, it sort of holds the vehicle in position for you to move your foot off of the brake & over to the gas pedal
that is the simplified explanation
In a vehicle equipped with hill-hold, a pitch sensor detects the tilt of the body when the car is stopped on a slope and sends a signal to the vehicle's brake hardware to keep the wheels clamped for a few seconds after the driver releases the brake pedal.
If the driveway to your home or parking garage is sloped, you understand how helpful this feature can be, especially on a rainy day or in slow traffic on long inclines, or when the person behind you inches too close in traffic. Hill-hold control just makes moving away after being stopped on a hill a total no-brainer.
Thanks GT makes total sence now, actually a pretty cool feature now that I know what it does LOL
