Fiesta Durashift - very quick (and silly?) question about parking gear!

Hi all. New to the forum and driving! Yesterday I put a deposit down for a very tidy 2007 Fiesta Zetec Climate with the semi-automatic Durashift transmission. I'm picking it up next week, very excited! :)

Firstly, apologies if this is in the wrong forum section, I just a quick question: I test drove the car and really liked it and I've driven both manuals and fully automatics before. I just wondered what gear you leave this Durashift in when you are stationary. I've been taught to leave manuals in neutral and automatics in park when I am going to be stationary for a long time (i.e. arrived at destination or parking). Since this semi-auto doesn't have park but it does have neutral, I guess I leave it in neutral when I'm parked or have arrived at my destination?

Thanks! Sorry for my silly question! ;)

Is it th 1.4 ? I believe they are manual boxes with an auto shift. I've not driven one but the dct box the the m4 doesn't have a park position but you put it in n then turn the ignition off and it locks itself in p. Maybe the Fiesta is similar ?

Hello, yes it's a 1.4. I think the Fiesta's gearbox probably acts the same as the one you describe. No park but it does have neutral so maybe that's what you leave it in when you're not driving.
