If they have a dash camera and you have no brake lights deployed and are stopped you could be found at fault for the accident.
    Checked the hill hold feature on my C7 tonight. The brake lights DO stay on when you take your foot off the brake.

    Next time I drive at night, I'll have to see if I can stop on a hill and check out what happens behind.

    On my wife's Lexus, the manual says that brake lights are on with brake hold.

    Not sure my friend but I sure would want to know if they are or not. This would be a great question for John to ask at the Caravan. Thanks

    And both are lockable now.

    Actually I was referring to brake hold where if you depress the brake pedal a touch more at a stoplight you don’t need to keep your foot there the whole time.

    I have hill hold on my GMC so you’d think it would be easy for them to adapt it to the C8

    The C8 still has an electric parking brake, so I expect the automatic hold feature is still there.

    Really liked the disappearing display on the C7 and the floor box in the back. Has anyone noticed similar features in the C8?

    Ok that makes sense. Just thought that maybe that could also lower and raise that screen but just wishful thinking on my part. Thanks

    I think it controls the vent below the display. There are similar levers above the glove compartment to the right, and I think I saw a video showing those operating the vents.
