When I am driving and stopped on a hill and go forward the ABS definitely is controlling the brake pedal, as when I release it, it releases a few miroseconds after me and I can feel it in while I am releasing the brake pedal. Anybody else notice these changes after having the update done.???

Hey folks,

I'd suggest reaching out to your Service Departments and fill them in on what you're experiencing. They'll be able to tell you if this is normal function or not and give you a little peace of mind.

As always, feel free to reach out to me via PM if you have any additional questions or concerns.
