Default Can you shut off hill assist in a 2011 WRX?

Iíve heard people say you can shut it off in 2015+ Subaruís but does anyone know how to in the 2011? Iíve tried the sequence for the 2015 and nothing seems to happen. Maybe Iím doing it wrong Iím not sure.

Yeah, I never knew a way to turn it off. I pretty much adapted to a new way of driving my WRX. Basically I would never held the brake pedal and clutch pedal on a hill at the same while taking off. I would always quickly take my foot off the brake pedal, depress the clutch and take off. It may sound odd to some, but I cannot stand any electronic interference. I don't need traction control, stability control, brake assist, etc. I only need 3 pedals, 4 wheels, and a performance engine.

Once, driving in San Francisco, I appreciate the hill assist. Iíve driven other manual transmission cars in SF, but driving in SF was the only time I appreciated hill assist.

I wish we could disable it on the GR, too.

Can someone direct me (link if possible) how to disable on the new STis?

edit: quick youtube vid of it, just press and hold the trac control until trac control light goes off. Takes about 1 minute, then repress and hold and the hill assist button flashes. Restart car. Hill assist button should be lit up in right hand corner and as long as that light is on there is no hill assist. Opposite directions for re-activating hill assist.

Don't see why you would want to disable it. Around here some a hole always seems to stop inches from your back bumper at a light. If you're pointing up hill, it makes for a smoother take-off.

I’m just used to not having it I guess. Kinda like the roll. But yea probably better if you live in a city area. Not so city here

I can't speak for the previous gen, but in my VA (2017) WRX, I find the hill assist intrusive. It seems to still grab for a split second after I try to get the car going from a stop, which is annoying. It's also pretty sensitive and I feel it activating on what seems to be pretty flat areas.

I also live in an area with a lot of hills and I haven't had any issues with the car rolling back with the hill assist turned off. In fact, out of all the cars I've owned, this one seems to roll back the least by far. Rolling back is only an issue for me on very steep hills, for which I use the e-brake to help me out with that. I only find myself having to do that once in a blue moon. I turned it off maybe 5K miles after I first got my car and it's been off ever since.
