Not relevant to the Renegade. The reason this is happening int he GC, C300 and Charger is because the shifter in that car is slightly ambiguous. I call it a "bump shifter" You really need to look at it to tell what gear you're in, because there's no tactile response.http://www.nytimes.com/2016/02/08/b...chrysler-vehicle-parking-complaints.html?_r=0

It's not so bad. I drove a Charger for 3 years. You get used to it. I'm actually kind of astounded that people are having this problem. Takes an extra quarter of a second to make sure its in park. The dash even warns you if you open the door without it in park.Oh I knew that, I was just wondering what the other one was like. I don't think I would ever get used to that one, it looks like a joystick.
I am on my 2nd Renegade (sold the 1st, upgraded to a TH). On my Limited I chose to shut the auto brake feature off because the Electronic brake was new to me at the time and I just thought it was weird. When I picked up the TH I just left it on for some reason. Now that I have gotten used to it, I absolutely love the feature. My brake always sets and disengage automatically (except if I am on an incline or something). It really is a great feature, the added safety is great.And if people would use their parking brake every time they stop/park the car, it wouldn't roll away even if it wasn't in park.
