    Do you use auto hold ?

    I can't not use auto hold. I find it too much of a luxury now.
    Starting the engine after the auto stop has kicked in can be done with a slight tap of the accelerator. Slight enough will engage the engine and not release auto hold.
    Don't put your foot down as if you were going to take off, it's a 2 step process. Once you've got that covered there's no more jerky take offs.

    I tried this today and it works pretty well. I like having that control over starting the engine and the takeoff is quite a lot smoother. I still find the auto hold holds on a bit too long so might try the VCDS change others have mentioned to do the early release. My only other complaint is auto hold coming on when reversing. I would prefer it was disabled when reversing. I have a steep driveway to reverse down and the the auto hold kicks in if i stop half way down. To move off i have to hit the accelerator which is not what i want to do when reversing down a steep slope. I guess i could turn auto hold off at that point but it makes the whole thing pretty complicated for what should be a simple task. Wondering if there is a VCDS change anyone knows which will disable auto hold when in reverse.

    Try it several times and concentrate on what is happening.I think you are blaming the AH on what really is slow throttle response that all Tiguans have and a lot complain about. Put the car is sport and give it a go then compare that to normal driving mode.

    My MY15 Golf has a pretty aggressive auto hold and it took a bit of practice but I can reverse to the point of crawling without the auto hold kicking in.
    It's all in the amount of pressure on the brake and keeping it constant with a steady foot.

    There is no comparison between our Golf PP and the Tiguan in throttle response and the AH. The Golf feels like it has a switch attached to the throttle and the Tiguan feels like it takes a message and then thinks about moving. Funnily enough I find the Tiguan easier to get on with but they are both vehicles built to a market.

    I have an MY15 Golf & MY17 Passat 206 - can't comment on the Tiguan.
    Agreed there are differences, each with their own challenges but just take time to get used to.

    Sounds intriguing (not sure I entirely get the purpose of it), is this something the MY20 Polo GTI (Australian market) has too?

    Thank-you.

    I never use auto hold or auto start or any other aids besides acc. If i am starting from a steep I may use left foot on brake so its a gentle take up on the clutch.

    I'm always respectful of the DSG and torque spikes when taking off with this car.

    By doing that it causes clutch slip which can eventually be detrimental.
