I'm sure that you are correct. It didn't seem to bother the Benz's but they were an '85 and '88; both had GM trannys on them at that time.Tornnight said:This is something I have been practicing forever. I have been a honda owner (Civic then Accord) and they both 'Lock' and thunk if you don't put the parking brake up before putting it in park while on an incline. I always thought that the reason is that all the weight of the car is now on the transmission and it's basically having a hard time disengaging itself with that pressure.
Dunno what your Benzes do differently where this doesn't occur.
