Who the hell knows why they put Start off assistant on the auto tranny cars. This very thing has been annoying me since day one. You can actually deactivate it BTW by pulling up a little on the hand brake. While not useful on the roadway, it does come in handy when parking.

Oh, and AFAIK, there's no software update to get rid of it. Wish there was though, as it's a totally useless and indeed aggrevating 'feature' on an automatic car.
