Why do you think your car has a PARKING brake? Relying on a small steel pin in the auto box to hold a 2 ton car wasn't quite what VW intended for their owners!

I like to think the parking brake is unnecessary unless you're on a hill of some sort. Totally overkill on relatively flat ground.

"DID YOU KNOW? Contrary to common thinking, the primary purpose of the transmission's "Park" position (and parking pawl) is to keep the engine's power from reaching the drive wheels when the engine is running, not to stop the vehicle from rolling when parked - this is the job of the e-brake."
