    At least Honda seemed to admit the fault and deal with it much more quickly than Vx!

    Wonder if the handbrakes are made by the same third party?

    just read this on BBC myself, shocking!

    Was in the dealers last week (the misses Corsa has a recall for a dodgy ABS unit, lets in water apparently) so I asked about when the vectra handbrakes were being sorted. They hadn't heard anything from Vx with regard to parts availablilty...

    Yeah, but Honda has way less units to fix, not excusing VX, but when you are staring the bill for that many Vec's it doesn't surprise me they didn't wanna fess up.

    Well I can see there being the next highway code amendment regarding handbrake applications - thanks to Vx and Honda - don't press the button.
