THIS..... or the key will pull out and as long as the parking break is set your car will just sit there. You should probably put your car in park though, it's part of your cars proper operating procedure. There is no telling what is really effected in the computer... and really, why would you ever need to park your auto in neutral?

Exactly, or be like me whenever i drive my truck. I can pull the keys out while driving... I'll be on the highway and if i have a passenger that doesn't know i'll take the keys out and say "Catch!!", they get freaked out so badly lol.

If you're considering leaving your car in neutral to take strain off of park. The best thing you can do is set the E brake and then put it in park. When you're on an incline setting the brake first would prevent a hard disengage of park when leaving.

Having driven a manual car in the past I do this naturally. I never really thought of it as keeping strain off of my parking "gear" but I suppose it would serve this purpose. I always pull into a parking spot and then set my parking break before taking my foot off the break, then i shift to park. I did this for 6 years on my last car (DD was an auto, sold it all for the mustang) and never had any problems. I would say that your safe fallowing this method... and allot safer than leaving your car in neutral.

when you get back in your car, start up, foot on break, shift to R (or D if you back in) then let the parking break out. You will never feel the transmission shift from park to another gear.

tried this on my 2012 today just for kicks... you can not remove the key without first putting the transmission in park. So "parking in neutral" is not an option with an auto.

I do not know much about the auto, OP, but in my standard I turn off the engine and clutch in to my stop. Then at a stop, I let the clutch out in gear, depending on hill or most dangerous to role direction, ease off the brake and when she does not want to move, I park brake her.

I was taught not to trust the parking brake, to keep it in gear.

I don't. I leave the key in it and it won't lock the door if they key is in the ignition. It's for when I'm in my car usually or too lazy to put it in park. But when I leave my car I put it in park and double click for the alarm

I was taught not to trust the parking brake, to keep it in gear.
Whichever gear suits the need be in forward or back and park brake. I was taught this too from my dad the hard way. Had a weak park brake and he thought it would be a fun learning experience to take it down in a tight downhill spot.

When I drove a manual years back I always left it in gear when parking and of course used the e-break. Also, if your on a hill point your tires so you would roll into the nearest curb if your break failed. I always put my car in 4th when parking but that was because the owner before me put auto start on a manual and i was always afraid it could jump a curb in first if you accidentally hit the button...

When I was in high school there was a jeep that something like this happened to, poor guy, wouldn't you know his jeep hit the assistant principals new car.

My friends camaro jumped, but what I was told is you put it in 1st or reverse. Always the opposite of the direction the car wants to go,

I really wish the Ford folks would have let us 2013+ take the keys out in Park with the Engine running. With the Alarm FOB molded as part of the key, rather and separate like my Truck; I can't start the Car, pull the FOB off the key and go back inside on a cool morning while the car warms up for 3 mins. Other new cars do not even need a Key to start, just press the button so its a non-issue.

So I have to carry both sets of keys for a month till it gets so cold I put the car away till spring. Dealer said it was so I could buy a $350 remote start from him. Well a start button with no-key should also be able to be wired if you follow the same wiring technique a remote start would use.

I need to look into this during my winter break without my car. I can't wait for the weather to break with all the salt washed off the road and begone, and its just started, bummer...
