Chrysler T&C trans can be shifted without applying brake?
I saw a news report a few months ago about a woman who was killed when her young child climbed into the drivers seat, and while playing with dials and gages, moved the selector for the automatic transmission into Reverse - woman was behind the vehicle and it ran her over. I recently test drove the Town and Country and realized it again, months after the news story. You can actually shift the gears from Park to Reverse, or any other gear, without depressing the brake pedal first. The vehicle does not need to be running either!! Obviously you want to keep kids out of drivers seat, but accidents happen. Has anyone else heard of this incident, and has Chrysler done anything about it?
