Parking brake auto-release

5208 Views 13 Replies 12 Participants Last post by  Loboc
If you try to drive off with the parking brake engaged, it will auto-release itself. Was wondering if this is a known feature e.g. do any of you do this on a regular (daily) basis or do you always manually release the parking brake before shifting into D and driving off?

The Gen 1 Volt did this as well. I believe it is a feature intended to prevent damage if you don't realize your brake is on. I always release my brake manually though, no reason to place stress on the system.
