Re: WKII Foot operated E-brake discussion

I wonder why they didn't just put an electric parking brake in it rather than going back to the 70's with this foot operated shit?

If I get one, I'll cut the foor lever off so I don't have to see it

Re: WKII Foot operated E-brake discussion

Probably something like 95% of owners ever actually use their ebrake. I'm fine with the GC the way it is...like its been said before its not really designed to be a crazy offroad machine. Its nice though to have a plush suv with those some offroad capabilities should the need arise. I basically see it as a budget range rover, only without all the quirky british crappyness. Or is it Indian crappyness now?

Re: WKII Foot operated E-brake discussion

Well, at least on the final production version they made it larger so that your foot doesn't accidentially slip off (Federal safety requirement).

Re: WKII Foot operated E-brake discussion

For me there is a certain offroad feel that is lost & a certain minivan feel gained.
But I understand there is only so much room & the terrain selector takes now has that space.
Not a big deal!

Sorry if I offended anyone it was said jokingly apparently some are more sensitive than I am despite that I am truly sorry for any offense caused. But with that said what is your "personal warning comment " all about?

Re: WKII Foot operated E-brake discussion

Don't worry about my comment, you already apologized. I have plenty reasons to be sensitive to a comment like that, just be careful of what you say out loud, that's all.
