That's correct, Monster.I have heard of a couple of the switches on the rotary going bad. It makes me nervous because I don't know anyway that you can bypass it to get home if it happens. I do think it is important to put it in park before shutting off the key, even though there is an override that automatically shifts it out of drive to park. A couple of times in the beginning I forgot to first put it in park and it seems to really hesitate before it does its auto thing. I get the distinct feeling that it doesn't like it when I forget!
