I have noticed that when you're at a standstill with footbrake applied, the engine is ticking over at 750 RPM and as soon as you release the footbrake, the engine speed jumps to about 900 RPM while the car creeps forward (as an automatic should). I don't remember such clever behaviour, i.e. engine speed dependent on brake, on my previous automatics with conventional hydraulic torque converters.

This could be because of the hill start feature that all the cars have....I noticed this earlier and thought it was clever

Julian,I was interested in your observations, so I made a careful study. Normally I slam it into gear and go!


You are quite correct, the footbrake release does increase the revs. I have thought, and said so on this forum, that I felt the "auto-creep" on the EDC was more assertive than I have known on other automatics I have had or driven. This increase in revscould explain it.
