Yesterday I pulled out my car for the first time in a week backed it across the street into my neighbors driveway to switch the cars around I left it running yanked up the e-brake hopped out and ran across the street I heard a bang I turned and my car went rolling out the driveway (slight hill) with a car coming down the street! I ran into the street waving at the car to stop! Luckily they did and the car came to a rolling stop in the middle of the street!

From now on I'm turning it off and leaving it in gear!

Get your dealer to check the e-brake.

Pulled mine yesterday to test my 180 turns (in the rain, on a quiet street). Worked just fine. :)

Was the brake handle still up? Or did it fall down when the brake let go? If there is no longer resistance on the handle, it might be a cable issues. I'm thinking if the cable snapped it would be pretty loud... not sure what it would sound like if one of the tensioned springs in the e-brake drum let go though.

I'm thinking a continue-st grinding sound I would think ?
:agree: if the handle no longer works.. its the cable :thumbsup::thumbsup:

The brake works fine since I just think when I pulled it up it wasn't clicked all the way in and just jumped down after a few seconds I just happen to be walking away! I'm just not gonna leave it in neutral! Always off and in gear from now on!

glad to hear it was a non issue! I'm a firm believer in leaving it in gear as well :thumbsup:
