Auto h simply applies the brakes to hold your car at a stop sign or wherever. You can release your foot from the brake pedal, relaxing at longer stops. When you press on the gas, the brake immediately releases and the car moves forward smoothly. It is a great feature and I use it a lot.

Especially helpful in long drive-thru lines or just waiting in line....:thumbup:

The first thing I do is activate Auto H. I love this feature in the horrible gridlock traffic in Houston.

Sorry but I am not even aware of this function. How do you activate it?

Press the Auto H button behind gear lever.

I tend to leave it off by default as I live in a rural area but if I get stuck in a traffic jam I always hit the switch.

be carefull with it though. If you are just inching forward, you will want to turn it off. Having it on makes creeping up difficult to do.

Wow..had no idea about it..had to run to the garage to look...yup it is there...will be very useful, i usually put the car in Park when stuck at a long light...

I find it very annoying in traffic. You have to hit the gas to move, not effective when you are creeping bumper to bumper. I only hit the button when I want to use it...

jgscott987 11-17-2012 11:31 AM

I find it very annoying too. In traffic or a drive through, I'm usually just letting off the brake a little. With Auto-H, you have to press the gas then the brake then the gas then the brake...

stevelup 11-17-2012 12:10 PM

So turn it off then!...

+1. It's handy at times, but I like the car to creep forward in traffic when releasing the brake pedal. Also, it can be annoying when you're in a situation where you're jockeying the car around for position, like forward, back, etc. It holds each time, and especially weird in reverse.

I love the auto H it has really grown on me can't see me not ever having it in any other car I own.:D

icu 11-17-2012 04:08 PM

I just came back home and I used it Automatic H !!! indeed I loooooooved it period
I will turn it on always

I found it nice in parking while reversing the car in my Garage so it stop the car before I come so close to the garage wall !!!

nice feature !!! :)

EC7 11-17-2012 06:30 PM

this is a very useful feature especially in stop and go traffic. gives you a chance to rest your right foot

Gurud 11-18-2012 05:40 AM

So i gave it a try today. I absolutely loved it. Always hated keeping the brake pressed at traffic lights.

Gilgorm 11-18-2012 12:01 PM

On those occasions where I actually use A.S.S., the Auto H is a nice feature to have as well. The ASS is activated when you step on the gas as well.
As well, I use Auto H all the time (without ASS) and love the fact the brake lights are always lit.
