So in another word, if I want to drive my car in ECO mode, I have to manually turn off the ASS feature. Is it suppose to be like that ?? I thought after coding once the ASS is turned off, it will stay off regardless of the driving mode. Can some one inform me before I go crazy on my local dealer
Your dealer did it right. What the coding does is that it remembers what you had it in even if you shut off the car, it does not permanently disable the feature you just don't have to keep turning it off. ASS is a feature of ecopro so it only makes sense that you would want it on if you are going to be driving in ecopro for maximum fuel savings, so the car flips it on along with the rest of the changes that go along with ecopro (even though I understand why you would want if off permanently)

I want to bring mine in but my dealer said I have to wait about 2 month after taking delivery to get it done. Car is going in soon to address squeaking brakes so I'm going to try to get the coding done then.
