Putting Roadster in Park

edited November -1 in Roadster
Driving a Roadster for the first time. Amazing car. But how do you put it into Park? I see P on the dash but have not been able to figure it out. Do you just leave it in gear? Thanks!

    There is no switch, when you turn the power off a parking pawl engages.

    So, do most drivers leave the Roadster in gear (Drive/Reverse) or in Neutral? Does it make a difference?

    when you take the key out of the "ignition", the vehicle is now in park.

    I understand the "park" aspect of it. What I'm wondering is where you leave the lever stick. (only applicable for an '08) Should the stick be left in "R", "D" or "N" or does it even matter?
  • It doesn't matter where you leave the stick on the Gen 1.5 ('08) models. The stick just controls the way the electricity is handled in the motor. If you aren't pushing the accelerator ("go pedal") they all do the same thing. You should set the hand brake, however, so there are 2 things holding the car in park.
