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.

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

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.

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...

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...

+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.

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.
