    when the key is removed should the handbrake automatically apply its self?

    wife got out of the car a couple of month ago only to see car roll down the drive into the garage door.

    not the 1st time car has rolled after key removed and doors locked.

    I found the car "luckily tyre wedged against the kerb no damage" down the road after popping into newsagents..

    mare!

    Not unless you have the auto hold... I have to manually apply mine each time I park and turn the car off.

    I always think that, i keep have to double check that i have put it on, It should just be a standard thing.

    I have to apply mine.

    I always leave it in 1st gear anyway, ever since watching my Leon cross the carpark at work :)

    I believe its supposed to auto apply, I would not trust it though. I would like to know if its possible to get a retrofit and remove what is possibly the worst design feature of any car on the road today.

    Whats ridiculous is my missus cmax e-brake does this as soon as key is removed, which I find brilliant tbh considering these bloody italians dont know the word handbrake, so I find it hard to believe vag doesnt.
