Hill holder- system-

Is the Hill holder system in all the Bravo models ? Found this very
usable when parking etc. It says in the manual that 5% steep is
needed but sometimes I feel itīs much higher when it starts to
operate.

Re: Hill holder- system-

It works - that's for sure. Bit easier than using the handbrake but hill starts were never an issue for me.

Re: Hill holder- system-

Not for me either

Also under the hill + traffic lights, is almost fun to use.

Re: Hill holder- system-

In a steep hill after stopping the car, the system activates on. When
start to continue, it looses up the break system. This lasts only just
couple of seconds.

Good invention to have. I assume this is in every model, but not 100% sure.

Re: Hill holder- system-

You need to be in first gear and the clutch engaged (I think)...plus you have to come to a complete stop. The system then holds the car for 2 seconds to allow you to get the car going without it rolling backwards...it's a neat system and many manufacturers have it now...

I'm utter mince at getting the bite point - I can but it sounds messy...this ensures I don't sound quite an amateur any more so I'm well chuffed!

It is an option part of the ESP pack, so I have been told.

Re: Hill holder- system-

Yes it's part of the ASR system.
The more is the inclination the longer it holds, but not forever .
Great invention and it's in all Bravos in Portugal because we've got hills all over the country.

Re: Hill holder- system-

Totally pointless in Peterborough. This is the nearest we have to a hill: http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3646/...de18ee19_b.jpg
When I took my driving test, I couldn't do a hill star. However, I did a real emergency stop, but thats another story.
