😂 Oh goodness. No laughing matter though!If you genuinely have concerns about this, maybe get a lift with someone else?
There must be a Parking Break somewhere? The Zoe has autohold for when you come to a stop, but it activates the brake lights so I don't tend to use this feature if I know I'll be stopped for long periods (though the autohold will change to the PB after a certain amount of time).Now what do you do when there's no EPB switch? Like on my ID3.
Autohold comes on when the car stops, provided you have enabled it. But all slowing down and stopping is done via the pedals. Also there's no ignition switch. The car detects the key in your pocket and turns itself on. Actually there is an ignition button but I don't know what happens if you hit that while in motion . The transmission lock is in the gear change on the far right well out of reach of a passenger.
Is my car a death trap?
Full 5 stars from EuroNCAP of course!
I think I'll get a prayer book for the glove compartment.
The ignition on a Leaf 40 won’t switch off at speed, I’ve caught it a few times because it is above a cubby hole directly below it.Same as in a LEAF where there's a foot-operated parking brake - turn the ignition off.
You need to hit something more forgiving than a tree, they are pretty immovable objects unless it’s a weedy little tree!Grab the steering wheel and aim for the nearest tree. Works wonders when brakes fail, so I presume it'd also work well when the driver fails.
Any car with push button start should ignore a quick press while moving but still shut off after pressing and holding.The ignition on a Leaf 40 won’t switch off at speed, I’ve caught it a few times because it is above a cubby hole directly below it.
Not sure about a Zoë but I suspect it’s probably the same.
