If you're parked and if someone is parking and bumps you hard, its better that the parking brake take the force then your gears.
Which is not relevant in a car with ECVT :confused:

Not Necessary - Automatically P position

When I parked my car today at work,I did it without hitting p button and the car moved more then it has in the past when I've parked .so, I will continue using the P button before shutting it down
:confused::confused:

Extra Step - Not Necessary

Look at page 182 of your owners manual

Automatically P position selection function When the "POWER" switch is in ON mode while the shift position is in a position other than P and the vehicle is stopped completely, pressing the "POWER" switch will cause the automatically P position selection function to operate together with the "POWER" switch being turned to off

What happened to my common sense ?

in all honesty, its common sense to press the P button once you come to a stop and the car is in a parked position..
I even engage the emergency brake when i've driven a prius, HS250h and CT200h as well...
But sir, I have little common sense since all my other cars are 6-speed manual shift cars. ..And when the simple push of the power button automatically performs the P function, why should one need any sense to be redundant ...and yes Scott you did point this out first ..I was senslessly on the wrong page.

But alas, the emergency brake is a subject of a different matter. And even such sensless ones as I engage the emergency brake.
