    Hi all,

    a quick question. I have an A6 2.5 TDI Quattro Tiptronic. 2002.

    Should I expect the car not to roll backwards when doing a hill start when in D?

    Or is that the nature of the gearbox and should I be using the handbrake?

    The car rolls backwards when on a hill start, I was expecting it to hold until I press the accelerator.

    Thanks for your help.

    On a slight gradient it creeps forward. On a steep one, like my drive, it rolls back.

    Thats normal then?

    Yep, thats exactly how mine is - and on a medium gradient it goes neither forward or back!
