Not necessarily. A lot of modern cars (including the MME) have a safety feature that automatically shifts the car into Park when you exit the vehicle. It's meant to prevent it from rolling away if you put it in Neutral by accident. That's why they give you a way to tell the car that you really meant to leave it in Neutral.
Agreed, I tried moving forward with the MME with the driver door open and the parking break kept applying.

Same here, Southwestern Utah so lots of sum but an electric rate of $0.06/kWhr, yes 6 cents, it makes no sense to go solar.
I wish, in Massachusetts we pay $0.26 per kWh including energy and delivery. I found a 50kW station in New Hampshire that charges $0.20, cheaper to charge int he Mall near my house than charging at home.

I've ran mine through the local tunnel wash several times. I use 1PD, and Just shift to neutral every time and nothing else.

At the end, I push on the accelerator pedal just a little to keep it from applying brakes as soon as I shift to drive, and then just go. Works flawlessly every time.

I also prefer hand washing all of my cars. I learned how by washing my uncle's 1955 Chevy in July 1962 and have done all of my Dad's cars, too. The only time I needed to use a car wash was in July 2006 because there was a drought and hand washing was prohibited in Laredo, Texas, so I took my Dad's 2002 Mazda to a special place where they recycled the water. The temp reached 104 that afternoon so the car dried almost instantly.
