    haha, yes I have yet to use the cruise control on my car. I don't get much of an opportunity to use it on the parkways.

    My area has steep hills all over the place & many of them have traffic signals on the top. Every time I'm stopped on a hill,someone just has to stick to my rear bumper. The hill assist is just some extra guarantee that I don't roll back into him. Especially in winter in the snow or on icy roads.

    That's the part I like about it. Still haven't had a chance to try it in the snow with someon sucking your exhaust.

    My biggest complaint with the feature is that my home has a horribly steep driveway. I actually have to take entry and exit of my driveway at creative angles to avoid scrapping my front and rear ends. As I'm adjusting the car and feathering on off the clutch to carefully maneuver the car the hill holder is constantly engaging marketing this task frustrating.

    Also since there is a slight delay I'm wondering how much that slight drag when leaving a stop is effecting the brake mechanism. I also live in a semi hilly area, so my hill holder is constantly activating.

    Short answer, no.


    I just tried this out to check. On the WRX, the traction light is only one color....amber. When you do hold it for 5-10 seconds it disables the traction control without the idiot light, but only till you restart the car, not permanently.

    And with the above vid you would have a permanent idiot light on your gauge which is more annoying than the hill assist is.

    I re-routed mine to fire the fog lights for DRL .. since my car is a base and didn't come with factory fogs I just bought the lights themselves from Rock auto and wired them how I saw fit. Either way we're getting off topic.

    Hill holder will be less and less intrusive the more you drive the car. After a while you'll be so used to it being there that when you drive something else it'll feel odd without it. I've been driving stick for 17 years steadily. This is the first with hill assist. Like new underwear it was a little restrictive at first.. but now I barely even notice it. I also keep the car out of gear at stop lights though.. and that does make a difference.

    WRX hill holder, I don't like it anyone else?

    It doesn't bother me unless I back up too quickly then brake. Hill assist engages without me realizing and when I'm giving it gas and letting out the clutch to the point where I should start rolling, it doesn't. I start wondering "what the hell's goin on?!" Then, out of nowhere, I'm off to the races!! It's like surprise launch control.

    I seem to remember another method where you disable the 2nd switch on the clutch pedal. You install something on the switch so that it never depresses. In the end, you would lose cruise control. Can anyone confirm this? I saw it on a forum form a google search, but I can't seem to find it again.
