2007 Dodge Charger SRT8: No Parking
June 29, 2015
For the most part, our flashback 2007 Dodge Charger SRT8 is in great shape. There are only a few issues I noticed over the weekend. One of them is the parking brake.
It doesn't work.
I was a little suspicious when there was very little resistance in the parking brake pedal. Once I released the regular brakes on a slight incline, my suspicions were confirmed as the car rolled back onto the parking pawl.
I dropped it into neutral, applied the parking brake again and then let go of the main brakes. The car rolled back without any hesitation. So there it is: we either need an adjustment or new pads. My bet is on the pads.
