I tried to roll my car a few feet but it would not budge. I had the key on, the e-brake off, and the car in neutral but it would not move. Is this normal and if so, why?

No, it's not normal. You could possibly have your brakes dragging. In my car, my e brake cable was beginning to get seized up, so when I'd apply it and disengage it, the cable was so corroded it wouldn't disengage fully. I could drive the car but for the first couple hundred yards you could let off the gas and it'd brake itself because the rears were grabbing slightly.

I parked on an incline and it did roll down the hill. However, when I tried to push it, again I could not move it. The other day when I had my oil changed at the dealer, they checked the brakes and said that the e-brake needed adjustment because it was too loose. They also said that the rear pads had more wear than the front, which I felt was odd.
