If you are driving with your right foot on the gas and the left on the brake, this is not good for many reasons. The most obvious is that you will have the ability to push the accelerator when at a stop. This will burn out your transmission and torque converter, costing you a tranny job. Also, if your brakes are not working properly, your car could smash into the vehicle in front of you. While on the topic of brakes, driving with your left foot on the brake pedal will cause you to ride your brakes. When this happens, the brakes heat up (very hot) and then they glaze. This is basically tempering your brakes and your stopping distance is increased. Your brakes will not function properly and this will cost you a brake job. The advantage to driving with one foot greatly out-weighs the comfort, decision of driving with two. One foot driving in an automatic transmission equipped car is for safety and cost effectiveness.

I have a Toyota Fielder car,but I face a challenge each time I stop up hill and want to drive forward, the vehicle rolls backwards despite being in D-drive. What should I be doing to avoid this?

This is when you need to let the clutch out just enough to stop the backwards roll when you take your foot off the brake, then you can move to the gas pedal and when pressing the gas pedal you can release the clutch all the way to get moving. IT is a matter of practice and timing..

Is the 60thousand milage service mandatory?

Couple of things on the 60,000 that you should really do replace all the belts and check the rear brakes. No you don't need to go the the dealer unless it affects the warranty. i am pretty sure the Kia has 100,000 mile warranty so you might want to check the fine print on the warranty just incase.
