Every now and then when I get home after a long day, I pull into my driveway and while the car is stopped (foot on the brake), I turn the vehicle off without putting the vehicle in "Park". Car is still in "Drive" or "Reverse" when the vehicle is turned off.
What are the negative effects (or are there any?) from shutting off a vehicle while it is in "Drive" or "Reverse"?
Vehicle is 2005 Nissan Altima.
