    At least it was nothing major.

    I had to call the RAC when I had my Astra G.

    I went from my house to the metro centre (about 12miles ish), at about 70mph all the way and when I got stopped at the traffic lights at the metro centre all I seen was black smoke coming from my rear wheel.

    My handbrake cable got stuck on one side, he was there within 15mins freed the cable, job done.
