My question is " how to get the car moving on a road hump out of a parking lot in a mall"
Background: i am new to auto gear. I was exiting the parking lot (exit is towards my right
At the point of exit there was a huge road hump. The car would not move. It was in D mode. I accelerated to get the wheels moving. The next I know was i crashed into the wall right opposite.the front portion on its left got smashed. Nothing happened to me and my child ,sitting in front beside me. Please give me more knowledge on driving automatic transmission. Driving schools don't. What happened
to me should not happen to others or repeat with me. My new car is with accident department. Very said:(
What I do in very tricky situation is to keep my left foot on the break pedal (not pressing the break, but ready to do so when required) and accelerate till the car moves forward. As soon as the car gets out of the situation (say an hump or a steep incline, as in your case), i press the break. This ensures that car always stays within our control.
