Regarding theft prevention, I agree, locking doors is a must. I see people leaving the keys inside the vehicle, which is downright stupid.
I park with just my emergency brake as well. With my older cars, I often left it in gear. With this car, since it's my first new car that I purchased, it doesn't bother me and it has become a habit. I'd be more concerned after some time as the car aged and the E-brake got weaker. But I've learned to pull it back comfortably and not stretch the hell out of the cable.

I don't think it's true. Nothing is going to collide in the motor or trans. Can't see why it would be an issue.

Now, getting hit in an auto car with the parking pawl engaged isn't good.

That’s what I said, I didn’t mean some pedestrian touching the car…

Learnt? lol

I have never heard of this being an issue to concern someone. I'm not being hyperbolic, I've literally never heard of this.

‘Learned’ and ‘learnt’ are both used as the past participle and past tense forms of the verb ‘to learn’. Both versions of the word are actually correct and widely used in the English-speaking world, but there is one small difference between the two words. ‘Learned’ is the preferred way of spelling in the US and Canada, while ‘learnt’ is favoured in British English. The important thing to remember when studying English at EC English is that while both versions are correct, you should always try to use the same spelling consistently throughout a piece of writing, no matter which one you choose.
