the only negative on HSA is if the hill isn't steep enough the car will creep forward. First time that happened to me I thought the guy in front of me was rolling back. Laid on the horn big time, then realized "oops...that was me! My bad!"

Or forward :-P

I rolled backwards at a stop sign and my roommate was like, "What the hell was that? You don't drive a manual." Well, dual-clutch automatic... so I kinda do.

SimonSellsAustin posted a link in a different thread to a site you can check your build information on by vin. http://www.etis.ford.com/vehicleRegSelector.do Click the vehicle tab and just put your vin in there. It will tell you what all is on your car. If something isnt it will say less, if it is it will say with.

Any solid answer if SE 5MT's include this feature? The owner's manual sort of implies that they do, but it sounds like a lot of folks seem to think otherwise.

Mine definitely does not have this feature. I don't think any of the SE 5 speeds do. If you did have it it would be under the same Driver Assist settings as traction control.

edit: And searching through the manual in PDF format I only see making explanations for DCT equipped vehicles.

Maybe I misread, but I could've sworn there was some reference to manual transmission vehicles in regard to actions to take in the event of dysfunction of the feature. I don't have the manual here in front of me, but I think it involved throwing the tranny in reverse or something? Maybe I'm thinking of something else?

I don't think it shows up under the driver assist settings, at least not on cars with the DCT, the base S/SE DCT without select shift uses the toggle switch to act as the overdrive lock out/ hill grade assist, but that's also seperate from hill start assist. On DCT equipped vehicles with select shift there is nothing under the Driver Assistance settings for hill start assist, only traction control, however I'm fairly sure that all the DCT equipped Focus models have hill start assist, but the manual does not from what I understood.

Well, I guess not a big deal either way, I'm mainly just curious while I wIt for my car to be built.

My 6MT BMW has the feature, and at first it's one of those things that seems kind of uselessly over-engineered, but once you live with it for a while it's actually a nice little touch.

You don't think? So you don't know... It's printed clearly that way in the manual.
