I've got 4 wheel disc brakes, but I can be rolling along at like 5mph, and pull the handbrake up, and all it does is just slowly come to a stop. I don't see how people can pull the hand brake and drift, when my handbrake barely stops the car when its rolling. You could probably get your e-brake adj...

I've already driven a few vans. Listing some off the top of my head- '92 Voyager '96-98 Caravan '02 Oddysey The Oddysey is actually very nice for a minivan.

Between this, MediaPlayerClassic, and a scant selection of other components, I almost never have a video that won't play.

If all 4 wheels can drive the car, then it is, for all intensive purposes , AWD. (emphasis added by me) Whoa, I read over this and didn't notice anything earlier but, upon rereading what you posted, I had to tell you this. I'm 100% certain that you meant to say "for all intents and purposes." :wink...

But then I still find his comment strange unless by AWD Brakefade meant 4X4 according to the generally accep...

Family's '06 Accord beeps when moving with the e-brake even partially up. I wouldn't doubt that Honda is just one of many manufacturers now implementing this warning signal in their cars.
