i had a problem once and that was when i came to a junction put the electric parking brake on and tried to pull away before it had fully set, it did not like this and juddered and made awful noise but that is the only problem which i believe was because the brake had not fully set and i was using the auto mode as opposed to pulling the switch to take it off.

yeh sounds like a problem if you do not let the brake set and try to pull away beforehand but using the switch would tell the system to release.

it is something i am aware of now so do not try to use it in those circumstances.

the brake itself is very efficient and great for hill starts but not so good for a quick getaway from the lights in auto mode.

just to let you guys know took car back to mrt and was told there is a software update for the eletric handbrake it only takes minutes to do .

used thecar all week works like a dream.

as for the rattle ,creaking noise it is booked in for 2 days to be sorted ,they think it is interior trim .

i will let you know what it is when they have found it.
