Went to go grab lunch yesterday. As I parked I placed the parking brake on. However once I came back to the car. The brake would not remove itself. The system kept reading parking brake fault. I had to wait there until a tow trunk came to tow me to the dealer. The car would not move. This is very unsafe. I have also came to park a few times in the brake placed itself on.
