Default Well that'* a first...



...and still annoying.

Simply put, the solenoid that locks the car in park until you hit the brake started getting sticky.

The solution: Smack the solenoid with a Leatherman until it cuts loose, then unplug it, problem solved. I never did like that feature anyway. Only downside is that it failed at the gas station, and I didn't feel like dealing with it there, so I didn't

It is nice having towing coverage on my insurance policy however. Prolly just paid for itself right there

Oh yea, $7 more per month on my insurance and I get towing for all three of my vehicles. Nice little added coverage.

i think the only time i had the bonnie towed is when the trans went. i could have avoided that too but it was slipping and i tried that honey stuff and it lasted a few days but then was done
