    Default NEW Vauxhall recall.

    I'v written this topic twice now, and its keeps logging out, and i'm a hairs breath from puching out the computer.

    Just to say that vauxhall is doing a recall for the hand brakes, on all manual vectra, signums from 2002, you will get a letter through the post.

    Have a look in car Mechanics mag for info

    Cheers

    Nope.

    Was thinking of doing the same.

    I appreciate its going to take a fair bit of tracking owners down on Vx's part, but this has been doing the rounds for ages now and I've yet to hear of anyone get a letter so far.

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : GSi

    Engine : 3.2 V6

    Year : 2003

    Mileage : 190,000

    Default

    I bought mine through Network Q, so they had an up-to-date address for me. I received a letter and a sticker to put on the back of the sunvisor. I still have the letter and the sticker! I have no intention of putting any stickers on the sunvisor!

    If it would be helpful, I could scan the letter later, when I get home from work. It is just a warning to leave the car in gear when parking on hills owing to some problem with Vectra handbrake design.

    I'm assuming that Vx will get our details from the DVLA (probably just need to look down the back of a sofa judging by Government departments recent record with data!!).

    It's been months now since they announced the recall. Come on Vauxhall. Pull your finger out!!

    no they are now actually changing the handbrake over for the newer one, so many cars have rolled away and so many claims against VX and the WATCHDOG SAGA has led to them re-calling.
