Auto Hold and lane assist

Post by RangeFinder » Mon Jul 22, 2019 3:08 pm

Having had a couple of VW's before where the auto hold function was the default and you had to turn it off, I find it mildly annoying and somewhat counter-intuitive that now in my Kona the auto hold function has to be turned on every time. Is there any way I can set it up to be on unless I turn it off?

Similarly I don't like the lane assist function that beeps every time I cross a white line. I tend to think that if I am concentrating that badly that I need to be told I have crossed a white line, I shouldn't be driving. I wonder if there is anyway I can set it to default as being off unless I turn it on instead of the other way around?

Thanks for any advice.

My Auto-hold default is off.

With regards to the lane assist - why would anyone deliberately disable a safety feature?
Not pontificating, but to paraphrase your own words, if it occurs so frequently that it annoys you, then you shouldn't be driving.

Lane assist will give you a 'reminder' if you cross the white line without informing it (Use of indicators). If you indicate, and I am not sure of your circumstances then lane assist will be suspended and then re-establish after a few seconds. The computer needs an input to tell it what you are doing hence the indicators. If you cross a white line with no computer input, it is YOU at fault (according to the software writer)
Good luck

Hmmm, if you live in the countryside as I do and drive down windy lanes where you almost inevitably cross white lines from time to time, then having a noise go off every time when you do is annoying. Similarly, I also do a lot of motorway driving. While I always indicate to pull out and overtake, I don't see it as essential to always indicate to pull in to the slow lane. Meanwhile, if I am so inattentive that I need a lane-assist to tell me I am drifting on the motorway then I shouldn't be driving. But hey, that's just me and clearly sticking my head over the parapet and asking questions has apparently just led to people telling me I am in the wrong. I'll get my coat....

I sympathise with Rangefinder. Narrow roads, cycle lanes and keeping close to the verge when big lorries pass all cause the beeps. Some times I wish it was just one beep instead of three. It is something I put up with though. I believe there are three settings to L.A. Off, normal and active.

Lane keep assist can be turned off with a press of a button, as for auto hold I think Hyundai have got it right! If you were used to driving a full auto then you’ll know that they creep, very useful in slow moving traffic. With the Kona a quick pull on the left paddle after stopping will put the car in hold or alternatively switch on auto hold. Of course the other possibility is a Chauffeur then you can sit back and relax, mine is a big red bus. LOL.

I have not yet got my car yet but like Rangefinder last was VW and always used autohold. But I invariably used the ACC even in town so had automatic creep and stopping. As for lane assist I got used to it and its an insurance policy.
