So on occassion, I've forgotten to hit the park button before hitting the power button to shut down the car. When that happens, I see the park button light up briefly, then the car shuts down. Since it's all computer-controlled anyway, does it matter whether the park button is used anyway?

Probably not. I get the big red triangle sometimes, but I think it's because I've either clicked out of my seatbelt and/or opened the door before hitting park. When I punch out the power button, it shuts off, and I never have any trouble restarting it afterward.

I agree with Spence. It's in the owner's manual that you can save a step and just hit the Power button and skip pushing the Park button. Good thing too. A guy could get worn out having to push the park button AND the Power button. :wink:

Ya know, I should just take an afternoon and read through the manual. Reading PriusOnline and other sites, I feel like I don't need to be doing that. :)
