And people were amazed to discover the little-known feature.

Posting under the username Cong, he showed viewers one way to save yourself if your brakes failed.

Cong said you should not panic in this situation but hold the electronic hand brake switch and keep it on.

He adds that this ensures the vehicle will “stop steadily”.

If there is no exit from the car, Cong says to fold down the rear seats and climb into the trunk.

Here you will find a small cover on the door panel which you can “snap open” for an emergency escape.

Cong also told viewers to first pull up the dust cover of the gear handle to find a surprise.

In this little pocket left behind you will find a yellow button which you can “press to change gears”.

As always TikTokers took to the comments to weigh in with their opinions.

One said it was a “really useful” piece of information to learn.

“Bro studied the whole car,” said another.

A third quipped: “How did I ever make it to my age? I really wonder – geez!”

However, others pointed out that while the tip is handy, it may not work for every motor.

One wrote: “It works for the model of your car not mine…unfortunately.”

Cong also had a few other hints for drivers.

It comes as drivers were stunned to find another secret button that could save their life on the road.

Motorists are aware their rear-view mirror keeps them safe – but on a sunny day, glare reflecting off the glass could actually put them at risk.

Being temporarily blinded by the light for even a second could cause a serious accident.

Or, if a car travelling behind you at night had their headlights on full beam it could be a major distraction.

Content creator, Coach B, showed her followers how to prevent a potential accident with a little-known hack.

Meanwhile, some people have only just realised a feature they must check to make their car last longer.

An expert has revealed one vital motor part that should be changed regularly – and it’s not what you might expect.

Plus, another unseen bonus feature that could prevent costly accidents.
