Ive determined my e-brake cable must be stretched. How would I go about installing a new one? (I'm guessing this is a big job)

Ya, it's not that easy. It took my dealer about 2 hours.

the perfect solution to this is to understand that it's an automatic, and never use it again.

Hey AznGA, how much did it run you?

Even if it's an auto, it never hurts to use the parking brake. I just don't like it when my car rolls a bit when I park.

It was done under warranty.
I damaged it by doing some drifting in snow.

I use mine all the time, If you are going to park on on incline put it on, for the simple reason that it puts less stress on the driveline.

Why would you not use it all the time? I mean even if you put it in Park, the car would still move.
Plus we have nice handbrakes. I hate those foot parking brakes. They are so gay.

What's wrong with my edumacation? Why do you Canadian's always bring up the intelligence? Asshat!

Anyway to keep it on topic, uhh, I use my ebrake on inclines, would rather not have my car rock back when I first put it in park, afraid it'll mess something up. Plus I use it so it doesn't seize up on me. That, and I'd rather have a working one durin the winter time :) Which for you Cuhnadian's is every day :)
