I don't think my 2014 ES manual has hill start assist. How would I know? My car rolls back on a hill if you have your foot on the clutch, or if you're in neutral.

Anyways most times I keep my car from rolling back. I seem to be behind with car technology.
But I do like using my rocking my car to trick red lights into switching to green.
If I had a very base level car (which I don't believe exist any more), HSA (hill start assist) would be very low on the list of additional features I would want to add. I embrace simple, however.
I relate to embracing simple. However, cheap and simple found me. From not having the money for expensive cars. Same with my friends in our teens and 20s especially the student lifers lol. Econoboxes themselves were practically luxuries when most people just had a bus pass. Lots of economical hatchbacks on campuses back then. Anyways I get it, always have with practical, cheerful simple little cars. I just dream of even owning a Mazda3. I am not eating out of Tiffany's silverware in my Hermes chair.
We'll be upgrading to Xenon head lights and adding those evo 8 recaros and seat heaters after all. I think we're gonna try to find the 2014 rims as they're smaller and its for sure noticeable in mpg. Same with these 175 tires. Im only getting 36 mpg city vs the 40 we use to get on the 2014.
I have a buddy who lives in Charlotte. I'd trade a set of the 14" alloys from a 14-15 for the ones on your 17. Also would be interested in your front seats if you're swapping them. He'll be coming out this way (I'm in Rockford, IL) sometime in December haha.
-Karl B. 2015 DE 5 speed x 2 and 2015 ES CVT. Plenty of other cars as well.
Same with the Ford Fairlane. Top-of-the-line in 1955, but by 1970 it was one of the cheapest Fords you could get.
