VZ Berlina Wagon
Has anyone noticed a message which sometimes comes up on the dash display which says something like 'Incline Control' and shows a picture of a car on a slope? I never quite catch the wording as it only appears for about half a second and only appears occasionally when putting it into park (not every time). There's no information in the handbook about it and I can't find anything on the internet. It seems strange to have a message flash up and not give any reason or information for it being there.
I have a Berlina so it may only be something that comes up on vehicles with the triple display.

You guys are on the right track.

The Adventra has a basic hill decent control or so i remember reading.
As far as I can recall, the VZ cluster that brings up this message can have a firmware update to fix the issue you see. its nothing bad, its a bug in the software.

yep, it needs a update flashed onto the computers, some models had an incorrect software installed at factory, hence, hill decent control flashes
