    Hi Scotty, I'll tell you a funny story. My wife was learning to drive here in Germany at a large school of motoring (no names mentioned) and after about 20 lesson I said we could go to the test track and she could have a go in my Honda Civic. So I drove the can on there and we swapped places. The first problem we encountered was that the driving school had tweaked all of their diesel cars so that you only had to raise the clutch (no gas pedal) and the car set off without stalling. But could she start in my car in that way ticking over at 700rpm - no she couldn't..some hours later I had managed to teach her how you are meant to set off...Next up was the hill start.. you know where you use the handbrake.. oh dear.. that didn't work either because the school car was a brand new Golf with an automatic handbrake and using a manual one was impossible. Some hours later we had that learnt too.. Now I don't know how it is in the states but here in Germany your first car after the test is a bog standard think with a manual handbrake etc.. so please tell me what type of school was this where there was no possibility of learning how to drive a "real" car.....needless to say after that day we swapped driving schools..and we went with an older guy who knew how to drive properly....

        Yeah my 2019 rav4 has sport mode normal mode and eco mode with a 8 speed transmission and that stupid emergency (computerized) brake. My car gets so confused with which gear it’s in. I think I’m just going to drive it sport mode. It seems to understand that. 😐

              ALL the manufacturers are making EVERYTHING that used to be simple as complicated as they possibly can. This is done by design so as to make you bring your car in to the service department where they can charge you SOOOOO much it makes your car obsolete and they force you to buy a new one. The auto industry has turned into white collar crime that the mafia would envy.

                I don't even like electronic accelerator pedals, let alone handbrakes... Whoever designed that needs to be slapped.

                  My brothers' car got stuck on the drive way because he electronic hand break won't release when the battery dies. Good luck if you also have a standard transmission, your car won't lock either.

                    Kinda morphed from E break to parking breaks... Just replaced the e breaks on my 2014 Silverado during a regular rear brake job. I did the whole mess myself for $65.00. Wonder what an electric system in a 2020 would cost.

                      Also boring kilmer, a brake power sliding and or drifting in winter is not as fun with button parking brakes.

                        I purchased a 19 civic in a standard....I was disappointed when the car arrived and found the E-brake was electronic.

                          When people say that these brakes are called “Parking brakes” and not Emergency Brakes. If you use it for parking then it’s for parking. If you have to use the parking brake for stopping when your normal hydraulic brakes fail then it is an emergency brake...there is no argument.

                              Scotty, as a mechanic, so far I've not seen or heard of an ee-brake ( electronic emergency , yeah I just now made that up :D ) on a standard transmission vehicle, and I hope I never do; but I have to ask, is there such a vehicle that exist?

                                Was driving a 2019 ford edge with lane keep assist and dynamic cruise.
                                Went to pass a car, got up to speed and let off the gas while in the next lane and the damn car slammed on the brakes. If the roads would have been slippery we'd have been screwed.
                                I'm with you scotty. Most of this new tech sucks and is largely worthless.

                                      The changed to electric handbrake so then they can charge you an atrocious amount to fix.

                                          New technology has problems some times? Wow... Wonder if there were ever any problems with cars with they first started.

                                          All vechiles are going autonomous, whether we like it or not. The general public has proven they can't drive. So, it's being taken away.

                                            Agree with not wanting e brake on a car, not so much on a truck that you use to tow trailers with.

                                                            My new car(10 years old secondhand one) has electronic assisted breaks - it has problems being used together with handbrake on a hill, it would lock out(break pedal can't be used) and need to let the car row 3-4 meters back to unlock it or go forward. I thought this is a problem with my car, but after trying few more cars with few friends - they all had the issue. All cars had electronic assist and were from 2004 to 2015.

All because you all drive automatics and only use the park gear setting for parking. That is the parking brake. Usually used for ... parking. I have never heard of anyone using it in an emergency.

It's actually called a PARKING brake, because its intended purpose is to hold your vehicle still on a hill or other inclined surfaces.

                                                                          • wvadam

If you don't signal your turns, lane changes, merges, and exits, you are a careless driver. If you follow too closely, you are a reckless driver - same if you are aggressive. And if you drive with only your parking lights on, you are just plain stupid - people can't see you. They see all those other drivers who have their headlights on, and not you! I deal with careless, reckless, and stupid drivers every day. We need more driver education, and a lot less technology in our cars.

My friend needed a jump start last night, and we had quite a time trying to deactivate his electric parking brake so I could push it out of his garage. Lots of “EPB Activation Incomplete” error messages and odd sounds before it would finally disengage. Pages of engineer-written manual to read through just to “turn off” the parking brake?! No thanks, Toyota!

Electronic components get weak, solder joints crack so do the fiberglass circuit boards that control these little electronic servos.
