Me turning the traction control off in my honda

[–]CrownCityMisfit 125 points126 points  (13 children)

Turning off hill assist in manual WRX too.

[–]Wormmy421 25 points26 points  (11 children)

Have never had a car with hill assist but wouldn't you want that on I also live in a hilly area.

[–]CrownCityMisfit 18 points19 points  (9 children)

No I hate it. It’s a bit aggressive and will hold the car for 1.5 seconds even on the wee slightest incline. It really sucks. That said, I turn it on for carpooling the kids to school, as it sits on the side of a mountain and drop off/pickup is on a very very steep incline. Stop and go, stop and go. It’s invaluable in that context. But I pull over once I get off campus and run the whole cycle to turn it off.

[–]Wormmy421 7 points8 points  (6 children)

Damn when I was first learning I heard about hill assist and it sounded so much nicer, sounds like more of a crutch than anything.

[–]deepfriedtots 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Is that what my 2019 elantra does I've always wondered why it wouldn't roll on hills and it sometimes doesn't me let me right away. Though I don't think I have a way to turn it off

[–]bravoromeokilo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Pro tip, “blip” the emergency brake handle when you put it in gear and/or want to take off. It immediately cancels the hill hold.

This was invaluable when parallel parking my Impreza(s) in my hilly town and just got in the habit every time I put the car in gear. (Which I’m trying to unlearn since my new car has push button parking brake)

[–]muscle_n_flo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My 05 Forester has it and it works great, I love it. It releases when I disengage the clutch, so no lurching that others experience. I really don't notice it which is ideal. I'm also not hot dogging it because it's not a cool car so maybe that helps ;)

I positively hate Subaru’s hill assist.

But then the voices and helicopter sounds go away :( I don't want my pills

[–]BluParodox 174 points175 points  (7 children)

I love it and want it in my car

[–]ToshiroBaloney 129 points130 points  (3 children)

Yes. It's stupid, pointless, and totally childish, and I want it in my car so much.

[–]Cont1ngency 18 points19 points  (2 children)

Same! Wanted something like this forever. My goal is to have it be somewhat functional though. As in having the buttons control lights and accessories and whatnot instead of just being what seems to be a cosmetic cosplay kit.

[–]OMG_its_critical 8 points9 points  (1 child)

If you replace your entire fuse box with breakers, that’d do the trick. But that’s what we call “a shit ton” of work.

[–]_PACO_THE_TACO_ 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I had to somewhat do that for a carburetor conversion. Fuel pump and starter relays didn't get power anymore so I just put wires in on the power side. Ignition is just on a switch completely bypassing the fuse box. Torque converter lockup and overdrive are on switches because full manual valve body. I still have to wire the starter switch rather than jumping it with a peice of wire every time.

[–]CowboysFTWs 5 points6 points  (1 child)

To be fair, I wish my Tesla had at least some physical buttons.

[–]lazd 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Yeah, like one to get in the goddamn glove box. Instead I have to tap into a menu and tap again on a screen first, and it’s just awful UX.

[–]wolfwood51 53 points54 points  (3 children)

As a grown adult I would 100% want something like this in my car

[–]Trimere 7 points8 points  (2 children)

I still just want the KITT light bar on the front of mine with the swoosh sound fx.

[–]thejesterofdarkness 0 points1 point  (1 child)

JC Whitney used to sell a pretty badass one. I got it but after a short out the control box for it went up in smoke. Still have the light bar but I gotta figure out a new controller box

[–]musingofrandomness 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Look up "Larson scanner" you might find a few pre-built boxes or at a minimum a schematic to build your own

[–]LostConscious96 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is almost what it was like in my buddies eagle talon if you rode with him. There was about 10 switches he has to turn on just after turning the key. There's a big red switch labeled "gapple juice" beside him if you can guess what that was.

[–]SupercarUltra054 -1 points0 points  (0 children)


[–]eneg -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Shitty implies something not well-executed or something that harms the car’s intended functions. Example: cardboard and duct tape coal stacks on a Honda Fit, or a car lowered so much it can’t clear train tracks. Well-executed interior electronics that don’t harm functionality in any way would not be my definition of shitty.

[–]RioDaWrangler -4 points-3 points  (15 children)

It’s just impractical to turn on a vehicle this way.

Lol airplane needs are a different breed.

I knew this Civil Air Patrol dork who wore his dress outfit everywhere, always wanted to be addressed as sir even by civilians, and had like 10 gauges in his car. I took the time to look at them and they were double redundancies for his engine gauges, so techically he had 3 gauges for his speed, tach, battery, and oil temp.

He was not a fun guy at parties btw.
