I've never done nor do I want to try this, but you should ask the dealer if this normal?

I've only heard of this happening at speeds of 5mph or less when the driver door is opened.

By the way do you have an Edition 1?

We can't depend only in technology, but technology can help us to drive better.
That happened with the airplane industry. The best computer and IOS is the human.

I gave it a test. Seems that if you tap the parking brake, it only engages a little. If you push on it fully.. it locks up. eeek.

awaiting the recall notice....

you mean the button by the stick behind the steering wheel on the right? or are you talking about the park brake button by the left knee by the door?

I believe Muscian is talking about putting the transmission in park at slow speed on accident not the parking brake.


Is this correct Muscian?

Now that we have clarified this Todd157k can please get in your car and go let say about 10 MPH and put the transmission in park and for experimental purposes only and report back your findings for us

I'd say do it slower than that.. there's a rumor if the arrow is not on the "P" it won't switch to P however, I never had the balls to try it anyway. If you're gonna try that that, try on verrrrry slow, like barely moving.. I did it two times so far and nothing happened to car other than pissing me off baaaad!!!! Anyway.. let us know.. intact,, take a video?
