Full Version: Should I Avoid Using Neutral On My Auto Box?
Ford Owners Club - Ford Forums > Ford Models > Ford Focus Club

I'm in the habit of moving the gear lever into neutral on my auto box and applying the hand brake when waiting at traffic lights etc. My mate doesn't on his Merc - he prefers to leave it in drive and keeps his foot on the footbrake but I think this is potentially dangerous.

What do you think?
it is a good practice to put in neutral and a ply the hand brake as leaving it in gear could lead to the gaer box oil to over heat and reduce its life.
Well, that makes two of us then!

Thanks Angus.
