Wait, are you saying there's a lag in acceleration with the auto-hold as it is when the car is started, or after pressing the button for auto-hold? I've noticed the lag when sitting at stoplights and it's go time, even if I've disabled the auto start/stop. I'm not looking for a drag race, but the car doesn't move, not even roll, until I press pretty hard on the gas. I don't find it very punchy at all, even in Sport mode. If there's a way to make this a lag better, I'd love to hear it. I haven't played with the auto-hold button at all. Thanks in advance.
