Hi guys, I've recently bought a used 2007 Prius and I'm generally pretty happy. As I'm from the UK I've never driven an automatic before, and I'm pleased it is so easy. However, I'm curious about one thing. Previously when I went to get my car hand washed when they were doing the inside I'd jump out, taking the keys with me, and they'd get on with it. About half way through, they'd roll the car forward 2ft or so by releasing the hand brake with the car in neutral so that its easy to push. Is it possible to do something similiar in a Prius, or this impossible as it is always in 'park' when switched off? Secondly, I'd be curious to know what other drivers who are used to a manual do with a Prius on a hill if they want to stop for a decent amount of time. (I.e. where you would usually put the car in neutral and apply the handbrake.) I know from North American friends that the handbrake doesn't get much use, even in a manual, but European drivers are taught to use it whenever the car isn't in motion. I really dislike the way the Prius rocks back when you engage Park and even the footbrake (only a fraction, of course, but it feels very unsatisfactory when you're used to having the car stay still.) Do people just sit on the brake until they're ready to move, blinding the poor sod behind them? Thanks for any help in advance!
