    Not sure which one to put this in, but since I have a Galant I figured in here.

    Is it bad to park on a steep incline everyday? My new townhouses driveway is probably somewhere around 45-50 degree angle.

    Yeah, but they usually don't build driveways there. Although...

    Let's just say that the steepest road in the world on record is half that steep. :mamoru:

    Random guess, obviously it feels steeper than it really is

    E-brake, and turn the wheels so that if your car somehow gets knocked out of Park and your e-brake fails, it will steer itself away from the street and maybe into your lawn.

    Direction of the wheel depends on whether there is a curb or not.
