Hi all! I just got my European 300C 5.7 Hemi Touring. I am deeply in love with the car this far. I've only had it for a couple of days so i haven't figured everything out yet. This is also my first car with an automatic transmission.
1) Sometimes when i park the car and shift to the P-gear and release the brake the car rolls backwards about 4 inches. I've been doing some googling and apparently this is normal. Please let me know if it isn't.
2) This leads to my second question. When i park the car i always kick down the e-break before shifting to the P-gear. If the car wants to move a couple of inches, it does not feel good to have the e-break in. Sure, the car does not move but will the breaks be worn very fast?
According to my Swedish manual i should always kick down the e-brake before shifting to the P-gear. Is it safe to shift to P-gear, release the brake and then "kick down" the e-brake? This is how i do it now:
* Park the car.
* Brake while having the D-gear in, kick down the e-break.
* Move into P-gear
* Release the brake.
* Turn off the engine
