hill hold

Do our Sonatas have hill hold?
Nothing listed i the book but I swear mine used to hold when I'd let of the brake on steep inclines. Now it feels like somethings grabbing but gives little resistance .

I don't remember the salesman mentioning anything about hill hold to me. It would be a nice feature to have!

I don't think so, but the KIA optima description says it has it.

To activate it, you need to hold your foot on the brake pedal.

To turn it off, remove your foot from the brake pedal.

You mean to tell me there is a dedicated switch for Jill hold like there is a switch for Active Eco?

No switch.

Park brake on and gear selector in park. Also turn the steering wheel if park next to a curb so the tire is pointing into the curb, it helps

I know how to work a parking brake, I use mine every day.
Im talkin about hill hold so the car doesn't roll back on very steep inclines when going from brake to gas.
Normally you'd just hold the brake down while giving gas and releasing .
My car used to nudge just a smidgen back then stop now it doesn't seem to be working any more.

What you have been relying on was the torque converter with new oil. The transmission fluid is t that new any more and is still ok. I don't have hills in miami so I have not tested the car on that. But I spent half my life in southern Germany driving My 3 series with a manual. I either did a fast transition of the right foot from brake to gas while holding the clutch or free hand the park brake.

I am not quite sure about this, but I thought I read something about the torque converter on the sonata has electronics involved. I will have to go to the HMA Service site and read up on it.

No hill hold. My Sonata will readily roll back on steep inclines. There is a stop sign at the top of a steep incline on my daily commute. People behind me like to tuck right up against me in traffic at that stop sign. I hate when they do that...I have to quickly go from brake to gas to prevent from rolling back into them.

Many squealing take-offs at that intersection. Some people don't even stop and just run right through it.

Another option is the 2 foot technique - hold the brake with the left foot while giving it gas with the right, at 1400 rpm, gradually release the brake, you should have enough power to overcome the hill - and no squealing tires.
