Hey folks!

Hopefully I can clear up your questions about Hill Start Assist. First of all, yes, all 2012 DCT-equipped vehicles will have Hill Start Assist. Secondly, you should be able to turn Hill Start Assist off or on using the menu system. Please refer to page 20 of your Owner's Manual (5th Printing) for further information. You can download a copy of your Owner's Manual here:

Let me know if you have any additional questions. I'm happy to help!
