Judging by the problems people are having with the electronics in the car which control most functions now including the transmission, the manuals are very simple and reliable in comparison.
Hm, just more less reliable electronic complexity?
"Electronic park brakes require some form of hill holder function even if it amounts to an automatic release of the handbrake" Probably with no modulation of the electronic "handbrake"?
The hill holders in my cars are the foot brakes, which have always worked to my satisfaction. I know how to use/modulate the gas and clutch when releasing the foot brake for starting out up hill if hill holding was needed. Always works.
By all means, though, if the car turns you on, go for it, absolutely.
