    Vauxhall Insignia - how do you do a hill start? 28th Nov 10 at 10:47 PM
    My company has issued me with a Vauxhall Insignia hire car, the weird thing about it is that it has a 'parking brake' switch, rather than a handbrake.

    To release the parking brake, you have to depress the brake pedal at the same time as pushing the swith, which means it's really difficult to shift my foot across to the accelerator before the car rolls backwards..

    Am I missing something? The car doesn't have manuals so maybe I'm missing a trick.
