5 speed automatic rolls backwards on hills in drive!
My SE drives great. EXCEPT if I stop on a decent hill and take my foot off the brake the car rolls backwards in drive. I used to drive standard for years so not a teal problem, but shocked the hell out of me for an automatic car. Anyone know what's wrong? Car runs and shifts smoothly otherwise. It's great to drive in all other respects. Anyone know what the deal is? 2010 SE.
Lets see...You're on a hill and you take your foot off the brake...Is gravity normally turned off at the top of the hills in your town?
There's nothing wrong with your car. An automatic transmission is not designed to hold you at the top of a hill, your brakes are.

I've had 4 other cars that are automatics. None of the others (including the two fords I still have, roll backwards in drive while taking the foot off the brake from stopping on a hill in drive. If this is normal for this car, not an issue- but it is surprising to me.
I've had other automatics that do that and some that wouldn't, nothing to worry about. You can always use the other food to hold the brake while you bring the rpms up to take off again
