Hi ,

My question is :

1. How do you park an automatic car? I have creta 2024 Automatic CVT.

2. Should you go from D to P or first N and then P, also should you continue pressing the break or release when you put car in N .

Kindly advise.

Dear Mr. Vaibhav,

Any Automatic Car or even specific to Creta has below modes
> Park
> Reverse
> Neutral
> Drive
> Sports (for engaging car in Manual way)

https://www.mycarhelpline.com/images/cretaivt.jpg

After reaching desired parking spot
> If one is on Drive mode - has to complete stop car to halt by applying brakes and change from Drive to Park Mode, release brakes
> If one is on Reverse Mode - has to complete stop car to halt by applying brakes and change from Reverse to Park Mode, release brakes

2. Should you go from D to P or first N and then P, also should you continue pressing the break or release when you put car in N .

You can direcly go from Drive to Park Mode - but only when car is in complete halt at 0 Speed (by applying brakes). no need to stop intermittently to neutral
You can keep pressing brake while changing directly from drive to park mode, once come back to park mode - can release brakes then

Suggest to also refer this video


explaining on how to park too.

Hi everyone including Hyundai people and Honda people have said if you go from D to P directly the entire weight is on the transmission pin of P( Parking ) which can scrap the CVT gear. Everyone on different forums sughest same thing that first bring to N then apply handbrake and then go to P.

Kindly advise If this is wrong method!

Dear Vaibhav,

Sure, let me tell you the most important factor while changing mode is whether vehicle is stationary - means at 0 Speed
If you changing mode from drive to park with some speed - it will impact transmission
If you changing mode from reverse to park with some speed - it will impact transmission
changing from drive to reverse with some speed - it will impact transmission

But changing mode from drive to neutral or reverse to neutral while on the go - wont really impact transmission
Thats why - you get a ideal recommendation to first bring to neutral and then apply handbrakes to ensure car not moving at all and then apply Park mode

But - if vehicle speed is 0 (set to stationary as complete halt) - be assured its perfectly fine to move directly from Drive to Park or Reverse to Park or vice versa - no need to bring and halt to neutral and apply handbrakes.

Should help !!
