Took a class and they recommended using the parking brake. The parking pawl can fail.

What do you guys think??

Thanks.

Easy answer: mine doesn't work. Low on the fix list.

I use it whenever I'm not on a flat surface but I use it less than I did on vehicles that had it located near center console. Something about the pushing pedal to the floor to engage instead of release makes me think it might get locked on.

never used the parking brake, but I also do not live in an area with many hills, everything is fairly flat. I've never had the parking pawl fail ever or know anyone that has had the pawl fail ever

Been driving for 40 years and have probably used the parking brake on any vehicle less than a dozen times, so hardly ever, lol!!!!!
