If you let off the brake for a couple of seconds on the steep streets and you'll start sliding backwards at 20-30mph... its pretty scary.
I learned that there are some roads I just avoid... or park and walk. SF is not car friendly in general. But yes, I would totally own an automatic if I had to drive everyday!
