Thanks. Yeah I pick it up on Tuesday, so don't have the manual in front of me.electronic thingy over your left knee with the buttons there on the dash.
owners manual = friend
maybe they moved it from the earlier ones, but been electronic since the 2010.Thanks. Yeah I pick it up on Tuesday, so don't have the manual in front of me.
One dealership pointed to the center console and said thats it but don't press it while you're driving. I'm like why. He says you wouldn't want to. Wonder if he knew what he was talking about.
Crosstrek still has a "manual" parking brake.
Originally the 'parking brake' was also called the 'emergency brake', which could still operate even when the regular brakes had failed. Rally drivers (and others) use them for tight turning in races. These electronic parking brakes are (I think) literally just for holding the car in a parking position, as a backup to the car being in Park.I always use my parking brake to take the weight of the car when parked, so I've also wondered about the electronic p-brake in my 18.
The owner's manual only has a couple paragraphs about using the p-brake as an e-brake. Those paragraphs mention the role of the VDC system in providing emergency braking if you pull the button while in motion. That suggests- but doesn't quite confirm- that emergency braking power will be modulated to all 4 wheels as opposed to just full on clamped rear brakes & locked rear wheels.
I'd be curious if your salesman knows from experience or from sales training which would happen if you pull the p-brake button while moving? Congrats on the new car!
Congrats on your new Outback. Take it from a guy who previously had two 4Runners and a Tundra you're really going to like it!Going from a 4Runner to a brand new 2018 Outback.
Loved the 4Runner, will miss it. But one main advantage is better gas mileage.
One question. Where's the emergency brake? :surprise:
