Has anyone noticed how the 209 is at a standstill on an incline ( lets say if you have traffic lights on an incline/ slightly steep road). I just realized that when I took my foot of the brakes it didn't move back with the decline on the road. WOW!!!. now why didn't I get that earlier! Surprisingly this does not happen on a straight/ levelled road..or an descent ? Such a piece of mind when you are in a queue of cars at traffic lights. No worries that you'll roll back & hit the car behind you. I did notice that one has to keep the brakes on for a certain time period....few seconds perhaps.... before you achieve the "standstill" option?. It just stays glued!!!

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 ( other well as new Accord + a friend's account ). All 2004 models...this feature is not standard on either of them in D mode.
