    Giant middle finger directed at whoever put this dumb feature into the package cars.

    I hope there is always snow in your driveway, and that the zipper on your jacket gets stuck and your phone charger stops working.

    Yep, if you don’t push down on the brake far enough the car won’t go in gear . Have to go back to park & start over .. annoying AF... End up swearing at the windshield all F-ing day long .

    Really it doesn't, does it? Sounds more like gear selection inhibitor.

    it leaves you motionless in the middle of the road trying to get reverse to engage to back into a driveway with traffic coming from both directions.

    not dangerous at all.

    Another brilliant idea---will there ever be an end to them? I wonder if the "think tank" at UPS is giving a bonus to who ever submits the stupidest one of the week?

    This sounds like the manufacture put in a feature to protect the transmission.

    I mentioned this before. It is not the design by UPS. It is the transmission TCU software created by the manufacturer of the transmission.

    Ha, if you guys think that sucks, try driving one of the hydraulic hybrid trucks with push button gear shifts.

    This is a package car, unless you're driving this, you most likely are driving a truck.
