How do I disengage the parking brake?

Before driving, you should always disengage the parking brake. If you attempt to drive with the parking brake on, you can do serious damage to your brake system. To disengage the parking brake, press the Release button at the end of the parking brake lever (located between the front seats). While holding the button, lower the lever to a flat position.
