I have had my CT200H for a few weeks now. This weekend I noticed that when the vehicle came to a complete stop (at a stop sign) on a sloping up street, when I removed the foot from the brake paddle, the vehicle started to roll back. Has anyone seen this behavior?

P.S. I put in 91 Octane and getting between 49.5 and 50.5 MPG

I have noticed this car doesn't pull forward like a normal automatic does when you release the brake. It actually acts more like a manual transmission in that you have to give it some gas to get it to go.

I found it - On Page 254 of the manual it is called " Hill-start assist control". It says "further depress the brake paddle when the vehicle is stopped completely. A buzzer will sound once to indicate the system is activated .."

Interesting. Did you try it/does it work?

Yup! I use it all the time when stopped at a red light on a steep hill. Works great.

Heh I didn't know it has that feature. When I first learn to drive, I was told to pull the parking brake when stopping on a slope. But then I was also driving a manual so I sort of HAVE to use the parking brake if I don't want to roll back.
