I get a feeling the brake is not releasing, or not fully releasing. In the past couple weeks the car, in neutral, and pointed down a slight incline does to move until I put it in drive. The “brake” warning light on the dash turns off when I pull the car out of park. Yet I have this sense the brake is not released. Even backing out of my space, it feels as if the car is hesitating and it takes a nudge on the throttle to move.
When the car drives, it feels fine, though I have a sense I might be having a little noise of out the rear. Only other thing I can tell folks is that it may be time for a new battery. The one I have is about 4 years old. I had a “cruise” not working light the other day on startup, which subsequently went away after I let the car idle for a few minutes, shut it down and restarted.
Any thoughts? Is this a common issue.
