My friends 545 BMW had an even nicer feature. When your took your foot off the gas going downhill it didnt speed up. It kept a steady speed.[/QUOTE]
That's standard on my car as well. I believe there was a "revealing" thread about this feature on this forum when someone discovered this is standard on CLKs.
On the other point about standstill on steep accent, I tried 4 different cars today ( ..my other two...as well as new Accord + a friend's account ). All 2004 models...this feature is not standard on either of them in D mode.
