You can, at least when you turn on the car, but does it reset every time you shut it off? I don't have it on my '17 XT-T, but I have the I/S/S# modes that do reset every single time. It is annoying. I wish there was a way to set it to S. Yes, I know I went off-topic a bit, but the idea is the same.

Here's a question for you, I was taught (when learning to drive) to keep the brake pedal fully engaged when stopped to avoid causing a chain-reaction accident when rear ended. Who is right? The driving instructor or the car company the wants to make all the decisions for you?

Wait, people press HARDER on the brake pedal after coming to a stop?

Your leg must sure be tired after a lot of driving.

In my opinion, if you are rear ended, you are not going to be maintaining pressure on the pedal.
You've never been in a rear end collision, have you?
@slothman - In a truck, or a vehicle towing something, but not is a car, especially now that everyone has electronic e-brake substitutes.

Actually, keeping the brake pedal pressed at a stop sign, or red light is to prevent your getting rear ended! It signifies that you are stopped...
You can be stopped at a light without your foot being pushed all the way in. I grew up with a brake pedal being connected via a cable, not the current system which has the pedals not being physically attached to anything.
