I think that there could be an issue when turning the car off. If you stop on an incline and have your foot on the brake pedal and then power the car down with the “Blue power button” with the selector in “Park” the servo seems to leak pressure and the car will start to roll. OK this is arrested to a certain extent when the bolt engages in the gearbox. This however may not happen if the incline is steep. I feel that on powering down the car the electric parking brake should be automatically applied to ensure that the above cannot happen. After all the car take the brake off when you want to start why can’t it put it on when it knows you want to stop. A safety issue here I think, and it is not good to put that kind of pressure on the gearbox mechanisms.
