    Does this put additional / unnecessary stress on your vehicle?

    Right now, am parking on a downward incline in our office. I usually let the front wheels touch the wheel barrier softly then pull the handbrake.

    On an upward incline... this should put stress on the brakes right?

    should be ok...that's what they are made for after all.

    resting the front wheels against a wheel barrier is a good idea. if there is a curb, turn your front wheels into the curb to relieve some of the pressure.

    follow-up to mazdamazda's question, how about sa suspension? dito naman kasi sa basement ng building namin, karamihan sa parking ay inclined at pag mag-park ka, sideways - meaning yong left or right side ng vehicle ay lower than the other side. so hindi balance ang load ng suspension, and that's 5 days a week, at least 8 hours a day. isn't it causing undue stress sa one side of the car?

    ang isang suggestion sakin specially if yung sa bangin banda, like sa tagaytay...

    pull the handbreak release brakes etc... then pagpatay mo ng engine tsaka mo ipasok sa 1st gear, just to make sure na hindi gagalaw ang car..

    ang prob nito eh tulad nung sabi sa isang thread, pag nabangga ka buong makina mo sira

    thanks for pointing that out.

    am also worried about the stress on the suspension components. especially that am parking on an incline at an angle (which in my opinion puts the most stress on the rightmost front suspension).

    I usually engage 1st gear kung upward ang pag-park sa incline. Kung downward-facing naman ang parada ko, I leave the reverse gear engaged. Does this help?

    Bogeyman,

    will make no difference. the gears aren't spinning anyway, so any gear will be the same
