Hill/brake Assist - Is this normal?
I observed something last night. I pulled up my driveway... it is slightly inclined up towards the garage, pushed the parking brake, put the Jeep in park, walked in to the garage, moved my bike away, then came back to the Jeep, removed parking brake, with foot on brake I put the Jeep in drive and let go of the brake.
I noticed that the Jeep did not roll back and perhaps it was the brake/hill assist. For the heck of it, with foot on brake, I put the Jeep in N, then put it in drive and let go of the brake. The Jeep immediately started to roll back, even though it was in Drive.
Is this normal? Can someone test on their Jeep and let me know. I thought the hill assist would prevent this from happening. On my old ZJ, if I put it in drive from neutral, it will not roll backwards and try to fight going back.
