    Exclamation End of 2010 Time limit on handbrake Recall for 2004

    Just checked with Vx and my 2004 Vectra C is outstanding Handbrake recall.

    Their tel no. to check yours is 0845 0902044

    They also advised me the time limit for my car end of THIS year.

    Managed to get it booked in for the work but thought i would WARN others as I did not realise they put a time limit on these things and I nearly got caught out!

    this cant be true mines a 52 plate & ive just got a letter off vauxhall dated 3rd dec. stating they have no record of my vehicle ever having the handbrake mod done... it clearly states to contact my nearest vauxhall dealer to return it to have the rework done. no time limit mentioned at all.

    Well I am only going off what Vx told me - he said you can have it done any time but if you want it done FOC then to do it by year end.

    Maybe he really meant "My boss says if we don't increase the work we're billing Vauxhall for by the end of the year, no one's getting a bonus".

    The message came from Vx HQ rather than the dealer stealer otherwise I too would have been more suspicious - their tel no in my first post.
