Is it dangerous?

Is it dangerous to my car to turn it off while I'm slowly cruising up to parking while it's in neutral??? It's a stick and my dad did it the other day and he scared me

Not really, if it's in neutral it can't really hurt much, if anything at all.

No. Just as long as you don't pull the key out and lock the ignition because then the steering wheel locks and you can't turn.
If you don't think it's safe, don't do it.

Just to be different I'm going to say yes! Actually it really isn't that dangerous I do it sometimes, and I have an Auto.

Re: Is it dangerous?

A lot just depends on how the manufacturer set up the steering column. My wife's Hyundai used to lock the steering wheel ANYTIME the ignition is turned off. The dealer had to replace the steering column as it was supposed to have an "Acc" position, but the lock malfunctioned.

As long as the steering wheel doesn't lock and the gears are in neutral, you can coast and steer. We used to do that YEARS ago to sneak up on people.
