Why do manual cars roll back and go back on hills/roads? watch

    All five of our automatics roll backwards slightly whilst in 'D' on a steep hill. Normally, if I'm hill starting an auto, I'll bung it in 'D' then brings the revs up slightly whilst holding it on the footbrake/handbrake. Makes for a clean getaway and no rolling back.
    Hmm, I guess it depends on the individual car whether the torque converter will hold it or not.

    I've had two old Mercedes W124 autos, and neither of them rolled back.
