#3820 of 3823 Is this normal?

My 2005 maxx LT, AUTO, when in D and stopped on a slope, it will back down. I have to hit the brake and once the brake is released, I have to press gas real quick.
Is it because the idle rev is too low? Mine is just above 500 rpm at idle without A/C fan running.

depends on how big a slope. If I am on a steep hill and idling, I will have to rev the engine a little to keep my Maxx from going backwards once I let up on the brake.
Then again, if the car __wasn't__ slipping on the same slope earlier on, with same engine RPM, there might be a problem.

Yep, it is normal. I sure wouldn't call it as quick as a manual with clutch; there shouldn't be any real urgency to try the 220 lb feet of torque on any hills except in San Francisco
#3823 of 3823 Sorry for the disruption.
