    Honda Jazz Handbrake problems

    Honda Jazz Handbrake problems 6th Jun 10 at 9:33 PM
    Has anyone else had problems with the handbrake on their Honda Jazz? My car is 2 years old, and has a nasty habit of running away and bashing into bollards when it has been left on its own (not on a steep incline). The handbrake has been adjusted several times, and is always on when the car is left. Honda has basically said I am an incompetent little woman who has not got the strength to put the handbrake on properly. I have looked on the internet to find I am not the only one who has this problem, so would like to hear from anyone else so I can go back to Honda and sort it out. I believe the whole range needs to be recalled before someone is injured. The problem stems from when the brakes cool down, some few minutes after the car has been left parked. When leaving the car it seems safe and secure, but once the brakes cool down it starts to roll. Honda have said I should always leave it in gear, but that should not be necessary in my opinion, unless it is on a steep incline. Thanks for reading.
