It's nice that newer Hondas have a warning "beep" if you start to
drive with the parking brake on. I did that once some years back,
before the beep, and didn't realize the problem until I smelled
burning brakes a mile along. Just the other day I got a "beep" when I
had just pulled out of a parking space. Good thing.
But my question then and now, is why is the parking brake so loose
that it's easy to drive against? In the past I've asked the dealer to
tighten it up, but it's clear that the "proper" setting is such that,
even if you get three or four clicks up when setting it, the car will
still move against it even in idle. Are we supposed to jerk the
handle up with serious strength, get a few more clicks, and really
lock things in?
Maybe the owners manual says something ...
