    Recall has been about for 3 years. There have been cases of the Vectra/Signum handbrakes releasing themselves.

    You mean to say that being a member since Aug 2009 and you've not noticed the odd one or 500 comments about the handbrake recall?

    Also got a mention on Watchdog and in most, if not all the newspapers.

    Where have you been?

    Just get it done. Free recall and well worthwhile. Takes about 20 minutes and makes your handbrake more reliable.

    Get them to check for other recalls the car might have missed as well.

    Vauxhall reworks, I think they call it.

    Surprised you weren't told the indicators are showing white either that's another of their favourites.
