Tried putting it in manual and starting in 2nd. 2nd gear won’t actually engage until getting to about 8 mph.
Hill assist is already turned on in my car as well. Just got home from a dr appointment and tried putting it in sport mode and moving the shifter to the manual position. While still not able to brake while giving throttle, the throttle was less responsive and smoother for some reason. I would have expected the opposite. Go figure.
It’s not really a problem for me, but the wife who doesn’t drive the car would probably freak out if she had to drive it into the garage. She has an Impreza and her car allows riding the brake while giving throttle inputs.
It‘ll be a little trippy the first time I drive it up on ramps to do my first oil change. That’s when I usually ride the brake a little with my left foot while giving gas.
