Start the vehicle after it has been sitting for a few hours there is an extremely hard brake pedal. You can press as hard as you can the vehicle rolls away for 5 to 10 seconds depending how long the vehicle has sat. The vehicle is a manual transmission so in order to start the clutch needs to be compressed thus putting you in neutral with no brakes. The emergency brake also does not work in the all the way up position. So when starting in the morning or after a few hours there are no brakes at all.
