Got call from my dealer this morning to advise a recall had been issued due to handbrake issues, which will delay delivery of my new baby..

Do these vehicle's suffer from many recalls?

First I've heard of a handbrake problem. Perhaps they just found an issue with yours and there's a delay while they fix it.

Or... maybe they noticed an issue in the factory which only affects recent builds.

From memory there was an original brake issue back in march /june 2013 . Dacia said that it was being dealt with at the import centre .

When it comes to recalls , the only one which should be an OFFICIAL recall is the corrosion on India Dusters , but Dacia are doing everything to avoid it becoming a VOSA recall .

I haven't heard of a recall for any handbrake issues. But I had mine into the dealers twice as I wasn't happy with the holding ability. Came back first time with no difference at all, so back it went for them to try again, this time it's okay. I've never used the handbrake ratchet, always pressing the release button in & heaving it on. In fact my last motor had app 20k on the clock when I put it in as part-ex for the Duster, the handbrake ratchet & pawl will have been as new.

Not heard anything on my phase 2, which was manufactured late 2014, and I've not had any issues with the handbrake - in fact I've not had any problems with anything since I got it at the beginning of January. Perhaps it's just a small batch that are involved.

I was always taught to apply the handbrake with the button depressed... 'They' could be wrong though!

Me too, if I can correctly remember that far back ! My wife always user the ratchet on her car (Renault Clio) and the noise of it really grates on me. Seriously though, I've never heard of any benefit from doing so and other car forums I've looked at have many comments from mechanics who recommend pressing the button in. It also reduces ratchet wear. The only caveat is to be sure that the ratchet is actually engaged.
