Hand Break

Post by LeeLee12 » Sun Feb 16, 2020 6:20 pm

Hello
I am new to the Karoq as from 24 hours ago I am a proud owner of my new 4x4 sport line automatic
As a manual driver of 25 years an automatic is a new thing.

So this could sound very Blonde .... I am parking on a hill and the auto P ( Park ) is on..
Does these mean I am Parked safe and the car will NOT roll away.. it feels unsafe when your not using a hand break , what if this fails ? Does the car roll off??


Is this the best thing to do or am I missing something ?

Thanks Alethea
Alethea ❤️❤️

Thanks Mike
Glad I am not the only one..
It was scary to just leave car and not feel that it was solid .. I.e handbrake up makes you feel secure lol
