PSA, If you’re going to attach a bike rack (or tow), make sure you disable the rear auto braking! Scared the bejeezus out of us twice when backing up when the car suddenly slammed on the brakes because it saw our bikes. You have to disable it (and parking warning) before each drive.

Also, for those that are interested, we saw about a 20% increase in consumption in this configuration.

With the factory installed hitch when I hook my trailer up it puts up a notice that park assist and whatnot are disabled automatically. I know they told me when I asked for the hitch that there was some software component to it. I figured it was mostly the light checks, but I guess this was part of it.

Prior to the June update; the rear brake sensor didn't engage, just the parking sensors.
Now, after the update, they both engage. I wish there was a work around other than disabling them each time.
