Today I was reversing my traverse into the driveway - it is on a slight incline - I've only had it for a few days but I noticed unless I gave it gas it would actually roll downhill.

Is this normal?

Ya, I noticed the same thing....and if you are in drive, and are on a small incline it actually rolls backwards!!!! WAY more than any other normal automatic vehicle would......it's as if I am driving a stick shift!

I live in Seattle...quite a few hills and I've noticed these two things too.

Backing into my steep driveway requires ALOT of gas and it rolls backwards like a standard on hills.

Yeah, we've noticed it too. Anyone have any ideas as to why this happens? I agree, it does feel as if I am driving a vehicle with a manual transmission. I need to go to the dealership this week to get my RECALL work done and for an oil change. I'll mention it to them and see what they think/do. If anyone else out there seeks guidance, please post your guidance/results here so we can compare. Thanks.
