Thread: Mk8 Golf Missing Auto Hold Handbrake

    Mk8 Golf Missing Auto Hold Handbrake

    So just took a trip to the dealership today and learnt that the Mk8 golf does not have the Auto Hold Handbrake function. It is introduced at GTI level and I think it's because of the lack of DSG.

    What is more strange, if you use the adaptive cruise, the car can bring you to a stop (just like auto hold) and you tap the gas pedal to take off.

    If the functionality is available with adaptive cruise, why remove the Auto Hold button ?

    Otherwise car was absolutely amazing and I loved the wireless Android Auto and wireless charging.

    Did you actually see a mk8? They had it on display, or was it what they were telling you about it?

    Sydney City VW had a GTi demonstrator last Friday. Didn't have time for a test drive, was picking up one of our company cars from service.
