Evening all - My S203 C220 CDi with 6 sp semi auto doesn't creep forward very easily at junctions. At a junction with an incline it often rolls back as I take my foot off the brake on onto the gas.

Is this my lack of driving skill?
Something wrong with my 'box?
Should I be using the parking brake - although this seems like more difficulty?

Auto's I've had before creep forward and on an incline they hold their own - is this something I need to address? It makes me feel a little anxious at junctions!

It's a 2003 (52) and has 139k on it.

Thanks all

Thanks Moony - Is this something easy to adjust?

Is it not just a feature of the semi-auto? It is not a conventional automatic as it has not got a torque convertor. Yours has an electronically operated clutch that has to be engaged by the computer when it deems necessersary hence the charicteristics are very different from conventional automatics.

Thanks for that DSM, sorry I've not replied!

I think you're right though - diggings lead me to believe it's a feature! I'll get used to it I guess!

Thanks again
