I just noticed that when door/s is/are open, then you’re trying to drive, it will shift automatically to Park. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Yeah, safety feature. My other car an Escape does the same thing. If you have the door open in park, put it in drive with the door still open, the gear selector dial moves back to park.

That sounds like a PIA if you're trying to reposition a trailer.

You are exactly right, already experienced this PIA. I wish this could be disabled in the settings. Searched manual, but could not find this as an option.

Yeah, there's probably a way to defeat it but I haven't messed with it enough to know how.

That's the one scenario I thought of too when I noticed my Escape doing it. Not that you would ever tow with the tiny, pathetic 1.5L 3-cylinder the Escape has!
