Not sure if any one of you experience this. i was waiting for traffic light on a incline slope. I loose the brake pad, the car didnt slide, which was good (Still in D gear). But when i tried to press the brake pad again, the brake pad was locked. then i press the gas, and the brake pad worked again. Is that a brake malfunctioning?

Here you go...

Hill Start Assist (HSA)
The HSA system is designed to mitigate roll back from a
complete stop while on an incline. If the driver releases the
brake while stopped on an incline, HSA will continue to
hold the brake pressure for a short period. If the driver
does not apply the throttle before this time expires, the
system will release brake pressure and the vehicle will roll
down the hill as normal.
