2005 Accord: Holding on a hill...

Page 1 of 2  
It is an auto, but I cannot hold on a steep hill. How do I do it? When I had the Civic, I put it on 2 and that car held, I would think that an Accord would do the same.

Maybe a silly question, but what's wrong with just keeping your foot on the brake as is proper?

Well that is not the problem, it is when it is time for take off that the 'kickback' happens. The Civic just took off and went forward, not rolling back first.

Thats what a HANDbrake is for;for hill-holding.

Maybe I should have written holding on a hill during traffic....

It's perfectly acceptable to use the handbrake or service brakes for holding a vehicle stationary on a hill, whether or not there is other traffic.

The vehicle is driving, not stationary.

No, when you're stopped on a hill the vehicle is stationary. Your upset is that your new car doesn't behave the way the old one did. No one here has given you true smartass answers (and believe me, they are *very* capable!); they're really telling you what "is." With your new car, you have to deal with that.

you distinctly said "holding" on a hill,which IS "stationary". Or were you saying that your tranny slips while -going up- a hill?
If you want to "hold" while stopped for traffic,a red light,whatever,the HANDBRAKE is the customary method of "hillholding",that is the reason it's a HANDbrake and not just a parking brake.
It's not a "smart-ass answer",either,it's a FACT.

Perhaps the true problem you are experiencing, is your lack of driving ability or skill.

LOL! That's the sign of immaturity, when one can not (or will not) accept responsibility for one's own actions.

A handbrake works great for that,too. Left hand on the wheel,right hand on the handbrake.

--------------------------------
The owner's manual is the first place I'd look. All Honda manuals I've ever read said "Don't expect the Honda tranny to hold the car on an incline", or words to that effect.
Solved..

Thanks. I will look. That is odd that it does not hold without the break. I expected more out of it.

yeah having the trans hold the car on a hill is extremely hard on it, is it not?
