I use it. My only gripe with it is if you are using the Hold feature and for whatever reason you remove your seat belt it will automatically engage the parking brake. I've done it at a light to remove a sweater or jacket. Then when the light turns green and you go for the gas the parking brake will still be on.

Also true with the Hold feature on and you get stuck at a long red light. Nothing like a good scramble for the button when you're stuck at an intersection.
