So, I'm new to all this. I just got (my first car) a 2005 Mustang V6. Nothing fancy, but by far the nicest car at my school. I love cars, and I know a little about them, but not a lot. My question is this, why is my hand brake only coming up maybe three inches? It feels extremely difficult to engage, and is a pain to disengage. Is this normal, or is it just because it's an automatic? I know on a few of our family vehicles that are manuals, the hand brake comes up a lot farther. Please, any help is greatly appreciated!!
