One issue I run into on the new car is the smart brakes, it senses how fast the foot is off the accelerator to the brake and takes over with gusto. Welcome to the digital car...
Interesting on the brakes. I left foot brake so there are times the accelerator pedal is rising while the brakes are being applied. Wonder how the computer would handle "instantaneous" or overlapping brake applications.
