    I am not clear as to the question: The car rolls back when you brake while travelling in a forward direction? or the car rolls back after you lift your foot from the brake in preparation to accelerateaway from a stop. If the latter check to see if you have Hill Start Assist (HSA)& that it is working correctly. There were many sold (various markets) that did not have HSA. HSA locks the brake pressure for about 1.5 to 2.0 seconds to allow (comfortable) safe starts on grades of 5% or greater. If you don't have i,t you will need to use the hand brake (park brake) or manage with careful footwork on hill starts.
