    Default Handbrake Recall for my 06 Vec

    Come home tonight to find I have a letter from Vauxhall telling me of a recall for my Handbrake.

    Never had an issue with mine but might as well take it in for the repair.

    Anyone else got the same letter ?

    ah ha now it makes sense, Thanks very much Nigel

    I don't think I should bother as its too much hassle to hand my car in then organise getting to work and back (96 mile round trip) and if they supply a courtersy car it will be that horrid gutttless Corsa Noddy car (thats tells me to change gear every 2 seconds) which they have given me twice in the past. Ekkk

    Edit : Ah ******, now the more I think about it maybe I should get it done. What do you think all ? (I have not had a problem with it so far)

    The job takes less than 30 minutes
    Book the car in and advise them you will wait while it is completed, and can only wait 30 minutes

    You can also have it carried out at the next service

    They say in their letter that they advised customers originaly in 2007 of a potential problem so it may do but cant be sure sorry

    Oh it also mentions Signums are affected too

    Thats what worries me Nigel. My Dealers are pretty good and they have stepped up to the mark on several occasions but I have had to wait in the past 2-3 days for a 1 day job to be done. Its up for a service soon so I will ask them to do it then.

    Thanks for the replies all.

    I got the letter too today, I created a post earlier about it and a couple of people also posted they'd got one.

    Seems in the new year Vx checked their database for any outstanding recalls.

    My letter was dated 7th January, so only took 3 weeks to arrive!!
