    Interesting he stated the car has an electronic parking brake. I had the chance to speak to some of Vauxhall's designers (some more pleasant than others!) and had a good long chat to one of the guys who was asking people if they preferred electronic or manual handbrakes. It sounds as if they hadn't quite made their mind up, particularly for people who will buy fleets of the cars (councils, emergency services, large companies etc) and could be put off by an e-brake.

    One thing that concerns me about the e/brake, like the insignia, if your battery goes flat you will not be able to bump start it, or (from what i have been told), jump start it either.
    You have to put another battery on, to release it.

    hmm electronic parking brake.

    sounds like its default position is 'on'.

    pray to God your not hurtling down the motorway when the electronics fail.

    wot a hair brained idea.
    It is only when the last tree is felled, the last animal killed and the last fish hauled from the sea that we will realise we can't eat money.
