Hi ,

My 2012 C180(germany), with 5G-TRONIC gearbox, was hit by another car whilst parked, so hand brake and parking on, witnesses say the rolled back slowly, and the police measured 15 meters.

After the accident i have tried putting the car on a ramp, in park with no handbrake , it seems to hold good.

Don't understand why it rolled back, if you could help me out would be very grateful.

Welcome to Benzworld, very difficult to say what went wrong here, but with a car this new I would visit the dealers and have it checked out.
