Then you should become an automotive engineer and change the way they're designed

Re: Holy smacks! My JGC just moved itself out of the driveway

"become an automotive engineer and change the way they're designed" - some here are but only Washington or managment can do that, engineers rarely win against the bean counters.


The LSD made sense to me if the problem was one rear wheel on a vinyl surface covered with soapy water on a slope but not if both wheels have equal traction.


Anyone who parks on an icy slope doesn't need a parking brake or PARK, they need studded chocks or to turn the front wheels into the curb (or didn't driver's ed teach that ?)

People don't have curbs on the sides of their driveway. Studded wheels are no longer legal in my city and probably a lot of other cities too.

The JGC does not have an electronic parking brake.

It is apparently illegal in Texas which is stIll in the US I believe. It's illegal in the UK and correct operation of the parking brake is part of the driving test. Don't use it correct.y and you will fail.

I don't know the laws of every jurisdiction but I would expect correct parking brake usage to be all legal requirement in Germany given there approach to traffic safety.

Stop bringing up old posts and I already know and acknowledged that fact.
