Default Auto Hold Parking Brake

I normally have the Auto Hold Parking Brake switched on permanently. When the Auto Hold Brake is released - by gently depressing the accelerator pedal - a pronounced and very noticeable (and annoying!) 'creaking' sound is produced before the vehicle starts to move.

Is this normal, does this happen to any other XC40 owners?

Thanks, in advance, for your comments.

Brakes can creak if the pads are not fully released as the car starts to move slowly. It may be that the automatic parking brake release mechanism is a bit sluggish and needs a bit of maintenance?

The parking break pressure is a function of how hard you press on the brake pedal before releasing when the vehicle has come to a rest, try experimenting with more or less brake force pressure and see if that makes a difference.
