    While reminiscent of the recent claims of unintended sudden accelerations in Tesla’s vehicles, especially after a Model X owner crashed into his own garage, we are not talking about the same thing here.

    in other words, he left it in gear and went inside and then claims it was in park... will be interesting to see what the GM engineers say when they arrive. Does GM have their own blackbox?

    Does it even have auto-park or the ability to move on it's own?

    I could imagine if you are used to hearing the engine, it would not be unheard of (ha - no pun intended) to neglect to actually shut the car off when you are getting out.
    Driving a stick, I admit to having sat idling in a parking space with my foot on the clutch and been distracted and went to get out of the car without turning the key and having the engine come to a lurching stop.
