Lindsay Saker / Stay far away from Lindsay Saker
In September my electronic handbrakes warning light came on. Checking the handbook I took the vehicle in for repair. The manager told me it is not necessary to repair it now because in a 1000 km it is due for 60000 km service. On the 11th of October I went into a shop to by bread. on my return I started the engine and tried to drive away. To my suprise the electronic handbrake was locked. I called the emergency service who after 2 hours removed the motors from the backwheels so I could drive off. Apart from the warning noise and the flashing lights I could drive and carry on with my work. I took the car in to the garage and asked them to help me. They could only help me on thuesday with a courtesey car and do the repair and service. They phoned me to come and check the problem. There was a spillage on a circuit board underneath the cupholders and this caused all the trouble. The next day a new circuit board was installed but to no avail. There was another fault with electronics somewhere else. It was pointed out to me that I must understand that this was not under guarentee. If something like this happens on high speed the people in the car could be killed.
