    Default Handbrake problem... another one for the list!

    My car tried to kill me this morning!!! Parked up in a different car park near work this morning. As I stood at the front of the car trying to decide which way to walk to he nick, I heard a clunk behind me and then felt the car start pushing me down a slope. Luckily I managed to get out of the way and get into the cab and pull the handbrake before it careened into a row of parked...... certainly got my heart rate going!!!!!

    Not good Jamie, but at least you managed to stop the thing before any serious damage was caused.

    just way to common now...vxshould really be taking note...it just isnt right!!..but just think if they had to replace Every handbrake on their vecs..it would cost them millions and so are likely..as they are now to say they are just one off's etc and driver error...
    always leave my car..not just this in gear..my sisters b/f once had a car go down the street and into a parked car and so I have always left the car in gear for an extra measure of safety...

    Not good Jamie. The worrying part is someone not quick enough/strong enough to get out of the way and then you get fatal'd by your own car.

    I have just added a poll for this thing to see how many of us on here have had this problem.

    Have a look, and you can vote yes now!!

    We've got to leave them all in gear folks, at least until VX are pushed into making a fix for this. Mine hasn't failed yet but it's always left in gear for piece of mind.
