Breaking on an incline causes car to Climb hill / rolls back down the hill

Asked by Jan 17, 2017 at 11:39 AM about the 2015 Ford Fiesta SE Hatchback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We just bought a used 2015 Ford Fiesta. We got the car home fine and we
have a slight incline to our driveway. My husband noticed if he lightly
pressed the break on an incline the Fiesta would climb the hill. If he then
pressed down a little bit harder on the break, the car would sort of...stop
/shut off(?) and it would start rolling backwards down the hill. We're
clueless, we've had the car for a whole day!

1 Answer

Oh, and the car had 38K miles on it if that matters.
