I can't stand this damn thing. I've been driving manuals for over 20 years and I don't need a machine to help me start on a hill, no matter how steep. Any way to turn it off? It also causes more clutch wear since it holds the brakes while you're trying to move so the clutch is forced to grind more. I've started to just wait the few seconds for the brakes to disengage before I do anything.
Let me drive my damn car the way I want to drive it!
