Weak/delayed idle, rollback from a dead stop?
We just brought home our 2019 R-Design T5 and it's great so far. Just working thru a couple of quirks.
One of them being...with Auto-Stop/Start and auto-parking brake disabled, when at a stop light on even a very slight incline for more than a few seconds, and I take my foot off the brake, the car will actually begin to roll backwards until I give it gas. If I don't hit the gas immediately, the engine idle will eventually take hold, maybe after 1-1.5 seconds. Just enough time to risk rolling into the car behind me if they're too close.
It feels very similar to a manual transmission.
Again, we've disabled Auto-Stop/Start, so it's not that. It just feels like a very weak and/or delayed engine idle. I've never driven a car that behaves like this. Even our 2006 Mini Cooper has an idle that will easily hold its position on an incline, if not gain ground.
As I type this, it's occurring to me that perhaps it's the Comfort drive mode. I'll be sure to test whether this happens in Dynamic mode.
