Always because it keeps the linkages and hardware from "seizing" from lack of use.

I do use the parking brake almost all the time because with a manual transmission car, it is very important.

Nope. Using it here means it WILL freeze 6 months of the year.

Yes every time. It kind of annoys me when I see people who don't use their parking brake.

My car is manual so yes I use it all the time. It's a good habit to get into even with an automatic car.

Always, because all 3 of mine are manual shift, and very parking brake-dependent.
