just noticed this thread when doing a search on google,
we were in traffic today on a slight hill over a railway bridge, stuck the handbrake on, went to pull off up the hill and it just wouldnt release, not matter what I did it wouldnt.
when I put the handbrake on, as usual you can feel it take the pressure off the brake pedal, which it did, but the car rolled backwards just an inch or two and the brakes groaned.

I had to stick my foot right down to get it to release, and when it did we rolled backwards and I had to brake fast to stop me from rolling into the car behind, then the only way I could start off was to again stick my foot right down and then did a wheel spin, we have the petrol version. 
I have also found of late that when pulling of onto/across a round about, there is more lag than normal before the turbo cuts in, I have not made it across sometimes in time.

My experience when starting on a hill is that you put foot on brake, manually disengage the handbrake, that should pop the hill start assist green light in console up, then you can pull away or reverse.
My driveway has a slope and if I want to reverse up it from a stop after I put the handbrake on, this is the only way I can get it to move without feathering the throttle or putting on forward first and pulling away downwards.
I suspect the car will detect you are on a slope, so you put foot on brake, disengage handbrake using the button, note the green light on dash showing it know hill start, that should give you confidence to then take foot off foot brake as the car will hold there for at least a moment if not indefinite, then you accelerate and it'll release you.
I hope that helps - been just over a month with mine and just figured that out this week -- of course, might say that in the manual somewhere?

Hi
Has anybody else had issues with the autohandbrake not disengaging in reverse. Stalled twice so far as it hasn't released. Both times on flat ground and from initial startup of the car.

I always manage to stall my car on Hillstart!! :(

I have the very small hill which joins a roadabout its a pain.

You drive a metre and then the hillstart kicks in and does it a few times I do get really worried about stalling doesn't help when the start/stop kicks in.

My view is the release is to slow and I end up over revving.

I'm I the only one who doesn't like the hill start feature?

Or should I read the manual?

When you do the hill start do you have the hill start logo on the dash?
