so we all have a hand parking/emergency brake. i always use it when parked as a precaution and to keep the cable from freezing due to no use. Now my girlfriend drove the car and she for like around the corner forgot i leave it up.... now i get its not a hard brake but all and i mean all my cars when the e brake was up it would lock the rear wheels. my 85 318i, my Chevy conversion van, my Toyota pickup. i thought factory adjustment was so it would lock the rear wheel at about 5-6 click

I've never been in a car where it locks the rear wheels when you try to drive away, but I've left it up by accident a few times when I first started using it in my new Cruze but immediately noticed it and took it off. Not only does it cause significant drag and doesn't start to roll when you let off the brake pedal, but the car beeps at you and has a warning light. How could she have possibly missed this?

Haha, I have forgotten to put the e-brake back down too. But like everyone else, well MOST everyone, I noticed immediately, due to the drag and bonging information center.
