I was rushed and rattled in the morning and drove Papaya with the emergency brake on for approximately 3 miles, at least half that going 55mph.
Honestly nothing seemed weird until I pulled into the parking garage. When I parked and reached down to engage the emergency brake it was already up. That's when I noticed the dinky red brake light was illuminated.
There was a very faint smokey smell outside the car...hard to tell if it came from Papaya or was just one of the many unpleasant odors the parking garage offers.
I feel really horrible about this.
Would driving with the emergency brake on impose a load on the IMA or strain it? The car is due for servicing soon and I can ask that the brake be checked...is there something in particular to check for?
