    2015 Hill Hold sticking

    I have a new to me certified 2015 five door here in the USA. 2.0l with the 9-speed. One thing that bugs me here in San Francisco where we have a few hills on streets. When I approach a light, or stop sign, on a steep uphill grade, the hill hold feature tends to stick. When I let off the brake and give the vehicle gas, I must rev it to around 2000 RPMs or more to get the brakes to release. In fact if the hill is steep enough I can hear the brakes creak for 1/4 of a second as the release. On flat ground the brakes release normally by rolling forward as soon as I release the brake. I don't feel like I'm stepping on the brakes harder than needed while on a hill.

    Anyone else seen this?
    Anyone else taken your vehicle in for service for this type of issue?

    Edit: From other searches I think this is called "Hill Start Assist"


    Thanks

    I've noticed this on occasion. Maybe not as severe as yours, but, even pulling into my driveway (very slight incline), sometimes it takes a little bit more throttle to get it going. I brush it off as "normal" but I also don't have to deal with it daily like you probably do.

    Just seems excessive. It can be rather jarring when you have the engine rev'd to 2000 then the brakes finally release.
