Who Uses a Parking Brake and Why

11137 Views 35 Replies 22 Participants Last post by  pacsk07
I can count on one hand the number of times I have felt it necessary to use a parking brake in over 55 years of driving. A couple of parking situations in downtown Seattle and San Francisco come to mind. I have always relied on the transmission and or the combination of transmission engine compression to keep my auto parked safely. How popular is the use of a parking brake. I note the Pacifica has an auto parking brake feature.

Question, as I have not tried it. With a hand brake (emergency), or a pedal applied parking/emergency brake you can apply steady pressure to slow and bring the vehicle to a stop. How does this push button brake work? I would hope it works in the same manner to slow/stop the vehicle.
