Hill Assist, Like it or Hate it

I am trying to start a Poll on the Hill Assist feature. Not sure how or if it will work, but if it does please vote and you can vent here.

the first time it was in operation, I thought the parking brake was still on :-O
I don't care either way but it seems unnecessary

What about "don't notice it"?

I was worried about this new feature but I actually havent run into it yet. Thank you super flat Florida.

I have been driving vehicles with a clutch for 35 years. I'm not saying I'm better or worse than anyone else, but when starting normally from a complete stop, I don't give too much throttle...I try to keep it in the 1000-1200 RPM range. With hill assist this is not enough gas to override the braking and will cause one to stall out if one does not adjust in time. The work around for this is to not press the clutch pedal until you release the brake pedal...on a steep hill this makes for some pretty fast footwork. Our new Jeep Wrangler has hill assist; however, disabling this is a simple matter of de-activating this option via the computer settings accessed through buttons on the steering wheel. It seems to me that Chevy could have done the same thing.

I voted. I hate it. Dumb thing to put in a performance car. I roasted the tires and my clutch the first time I encountered this. I can definately see how this could cause accidents as people launch their cars into intersections or get rear ended sitting at the light after it goes green. GM needs to retune the car so we can shut this off.

I rarely encounter it, and I when I do, it's no big deal if you know about it and how to use it.

One thing to remember is that it's going to hold as much brake pedal pressure as you applied. If you typically mash your foot down to the floor, then it's going to hold tightly.
If you just apply the brake pedal enough to hold you on the hill, then it won't be that big of an issue when you release the brake an move forward.

I don't get the hate..
it makes one of the worst part of driving a manual so easy.
Ive been driving manuals all my life (41 years started driving dads truck at 14) half of that in San Fran with 45 degree incline streets.
man this would be awesome there.
even here in flat ass Houston parking garages are now a snap.

how the hell did you do that?
the release is so graceful just a tiny bit of throttle and it pulls out nicely.
