See my current thread here in case you missed it http://mazda3revolution.com/forums/2014-2016-mazda-3-skyactiv-discussion/187994-release-electronic-parking-braking-when-reversing-uphill.htmlOne of the car testers expressed his belief that the parking brake would give trouble.
I wonder how they are in being able to take off from a hill. I feather both the clutch and the parking brake to do this successfully. Yeah, I know it is supposed to have a hill holder, but I'm still old fashioned. My wife pops quickly from brake to accelerator and likely makes use of the hill holder this way.
