Thats what I was thinking.................. which is why I found it 'amusing'.......... good old Honda, no wonder they wanted the old hand-brakes back, they've put them in the 09' models.......

My car was built around that time.
Wheelie - you can see when the car was built from the chassis number - I got my car around the same time as you (May - June 2008) my car is an 07

Don't know why I got a smiley - is should be 2008

Mine was built in 08, I had to wait 13 weeks for it to be built. (And rattles inserted!)
Yea! without putting in those rattles you may have had in in 10

Did you have yours specially built or did they just modify an existing car?

I can't believe that even a vast multinational would have such contempt for its customers.

Surely that isn't the newer model.

The majority of the 08YM models affected with this issue were reworked, but unfortunately a number of vehicles were dispatched before the fault was identified. This issue is more likely to result in the parking brake lever sticking in the hold position rather than the lever releasing itself once set as with the 06YM & 07YM models.


I don't believe any 09YM models have any such 'issues'.

Had a letter from Honda come through the post the other day regarding the handbrake recall, had the same letter sent to me in September last year too.

Strange thing is I had this recall done to my car at the beginning of last year :confused:

Don't Honda UK update their records to what cars have been modified? It would save them a fortune in stamps!

After a dealership has carried out any warranty work on a vehicle, they have to enter the details of the claim and vehicle onto Honda's online warranty system. This basically includes the work that has been carried out, the parts that have been replaced, the repair date and vehicle mileage.

Once this is done with regards to a recall or PUD, the recall/PUD flag automatically gets removed from the system.

The most likely cause for duplicate communication would be that the dealership that replaced your parking brake lever, never submitted a warranty claim to Honda, so there system still says your recall is outstanding.

No, I don't work within the dealer network. My area is a little further up the chain. ;)

Before anyone thinks it, I'm not a spy of any sorts, just someone with a valid interest in the quality of the product. :)
