Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Can I move my Mazda 5 without using the brakes?
when I tried to reverse that's when I found out my
brakes were dead. Can I still put it in neutral and
push the car?

Yes, only push as you have no breaks. Unless the car gets towed by a dolly or a wrecker, then it can be move longer distances.

@Rowefast do I need a second person? I'm on a slight slant and I'm using the emergency brakes


Well that would work, but you won't stop as quick, are you just moving it around your homestead? I mean a persons who knows what there doing, what to expect out of the e-break, you could get it somewhere very slowly using the e-break, but definitively do not be driving it around for things.
