    Astra Mk5 handbrake question

    Has there been any instances of a sticking handbrake on the current Astra? In the sense that one of the rear wheels gets hot. This was a common fault on the Corsa B facelift (R to X reg') and wondered if there were any issues with other Vauxhalls?

    My handbrake occasionally sticks on my 55 plate SXi, but thats normally only because my driveway is on an incline, and if its been sitting there for more than a day not being used!

    Not heard of it being a general problem.

    And its all more than likely it won't be an issue. If you say it was common on the Corsa B facelift (R-X), then they had the best part of 4/5 years to iron the problems out :s !
