Has anyone set there e-brake just to see or feel thier CTS-V roll way from them.

Now I know to leave it in gear and recheck the E-brake twice.

Mine did infact roll off on me, only to lightly bump into another car. It didn't hurt the other car but mine is a differnt sorry.

Cadillac rubber bumpers are very soft, thin, and weak.

Just a haeds-up Be Careful

Imagine my surprise when I came back to the garage after letting my V idle for several minutes before heading to work only to see it coasting down the driveway and out into the cul de sac. I ran so fast to catch it before it crossed the street and any damage could be done that my legs were sore the next day (yeah, I'm outta shape). Lesson learned, you really have to push the pedal all the way to the floor to get good engagement.

Proper V parking = leave it in gear.

You can have the detent on the cable adjusted so it engages sooner.
