2010 Honda Accord Crosstour: Yes, I Dig the Handbrake
September 01, 2010
Call me crazy, but I like the Crosstour's handbrake. And it's not because it gives me the opportunity to easily throw it into some wicked tail slide.
No, I like the handbrake just the sheer convenience of it. Put it in park, pull the brake and you're out. Now I know that sounds slightly ridiculous since pushing a footbrake is not exactly a chore, but I noticed it nonetheless. Maybe it's the new push button parking brakes that make the lever seem so charmingly simplistic, or maybe there's something to yanking a big ol' lever and knowing the car isn't going anywhere. I really can't explain it, but I do prefer it.
