Grammarly keeps pointing out this sentence with a faulty parallelism.

Both verbs are in the simple present tense and in the third person,

See example:

Sarah grabs it and gets off the car.

"Sarah grabs it and gets off the car." No parallelism fault there. It does suggest that Sarah was sitting on the car, however.
