AUIIXR8 auto question

Hi,

Just got out of the ute and it gave me a hell of a shock.. I left it in drive and took the brake off and lo and behold I am flying down the driveway backwards!

Do I have an issue with my auto? Every auto I have ever used will not move when placed in drive with the engine not running.

Do I have a problem???

No problem at all. If it's not running and in drive, then nothing is selected. It's just like being in neutral. If you dont want it to move put it in park.

Yes, it was just this one time (at bandcamp) - I always leave it in park with the handbrake on etc.

But anyway its normal behaviour so it seems so there you go I learnt something today/last night - don't do what I did.

no...i dont think you do..............i think its the converter....I'm pretty sure they are hi stall........you may have noticed that you need more revs to get it going compared to a standard car..

My XR does it as well.
