Both our new cars have the push button electric parking brakes. One in wife's car will last forever because she never uses a parking brake, even if on a hill just let that parking pawl jam tight in the auto trans who cares (we've had the discussion, I lost). Actually I guess it could corrode into the unactivated position. Anyhow, what about general relaibility of these relatively new complications of a previously simple system? Will I hit the button some day to remove the parking brake in my truck and nothing happens? Will the fuse be okay and some arcane actuator failure took over or whatever? This is my luddite post for the day ...
