The Auto Hold ((A))
I have my new XC40 since April 17, 2019. So I am a new owner. I love the car and all it's safety features especially the backup function when a car pops out of nowhere the XC40 stops. Wonderful. I do have a concern with the my car and since you have been driving the XC40 for so many miles I want to ask you. It concerns the ((A)) function. I live in a town that is on a hill so it was a very big surprise when my car rolled back after being stopped at a red light and before giving it the gas. I was on an incline. Fortunately there was no one in back of me so I didn't hit another car although, there is usually bumper to bumper traffic in me town. I called my sales person and was informed to use the ((A)) button. I have been using this to help , but when on a down hill grade and merging into two lane traffic the car needs a push of gas which causes a boost. I learned to take off the ((A)) so I could slowly merge in the traffic. I questioned someone at VOLVO USA, names Kevin, about Hill Start Assist, because I thought that was not available in my car, and was told it only works if you are in a cold start on a hill or trying to back up on a hill on a cold start. All my other cars never rolled back on a hill when stopped in traffic or at a red light start. Other than the bid trucks or a manual car have I seen cars roll back. So my question to you who has been driving this car for many miles are you experience the same behavior of rolling back after being stopped? Kevin, from Volvo USA said there is nothing wrong with my car.
