Does it have anything to do with the engine stop/start system? My Ridgeline hesitates a moment until the engine starts when I try to enter traffic after I am stopped.
I was wrong, the Sorento Hybrid has that feature.The Hybrid does not have auto start/stop
If it is not the typical turbo lag then I don't know what it is. That's why people buy superchargers instead of turbos.I received my 2023 Sportage Hybrid Sx Prestige in Dec of 22. Only have 1300 miles on it but I have experienced the same lag on acceleration. A little disconcerting when merging into heavy traffic. Will ask my dealership when I have my first oil change. Have you found any information concerning the lag? Thanks
Come to a full stop at stop signs. We have never had an issue with our hybrid.I have the same issue with my hev ex 2023, not sure what to do about it.
That was a joke. We do have issues when pulling into our garage. If we stop a little short of where the vehicle needs to be to clear the garage door and try to move forward a little bit more, the car will not move even when pushing the accelerator. I am fearful of pushing too hard on the accelerator and smashing into the workbench the front of the vehicle. It will eventually move, but at a rate that I am not comfortable with - more of a lurching forward.It's not always about stop signs. There are many yields that could spark this issue. That's where I encounter it most times.
UPDATE: You were correct, @Koreanadian. I showed my wife the auto hold feature about 3 days ago in the drive through line. I did not know it would stay "on" until I pushed the button again. It rolled into the garage today after we stopped so smoothly and effortlessly.Is it a transmission issue or auto hold?
