that was funny. and exactly what i was thinking.

did you try to push it back in

Hey guys are you kidding me, if pushing it back is the solution then that what I do every time I get in my car !!!!

it shouldn't go all the way out like that and should stop little inside when its fully extended!

Ahmed,
I think the release button has a collar cast around it to prevent that.
I guess yours broke and the collar is still in the handle.
What do you do about warranty over there?
Do you have a good dealer or is it a cross country trip?
......Rob
Thanks Rob, I forgot about the warranty issue, and the good news that I'm taking me car next week to the dealer for regular service, I will tell them about it.

Do you put your parking brake on every time you park ?

That was surprising !! do you put your car in P and leave the car without applying the park brake? is that safe for the transmission?

What if it is on incline? how you prevent the car from movement? do you just put it in P?

The "Park" setting on the transmission mechanically locks the transmission from moving with a lock pin. The lock pin can wear after time and cause the park mechanism to fail. It is not necessary to use the park brake for safety but for transmission life it is a good idea. I generally only use the parking brake when on a moderate to steep incline. For flat level ground I do not use the parking brake because after time and alot of use the parking brake cables can wear and stretch. You can adjust the brake cables but after alot of use they can stretch behond adjustment. Basically if you use either too much one of the two will wear out someday.
