Not really a like or dislike, but I find it odd that when I apply the friction brake to a complete stop, say at a traffic light, I have to keep the pressure on the brake pedal or else the car will creep forward. But when I use the steering wheel paddle to effect an engine brake, I can remove the pressure from the paddle and the car is completely inert.

Seems like the programming assumes if you're using the brake that you're use to a regular ICE vehicle with an automatic transmission. Use the regen and the car assumes you know how to drive an EV so it stops for you. I like it!

If you come to a stop with the brake pedal, you can press the steering wheel regen button to cause it not to move if you remove your foot from the brake pedal.

However, it is a good idea to keep your foot on the brake pedal when stopped in traffic to keep the brake lamps on for drivers behind to see.
