anyone else have this problem? I've been 3 months with no e brake at all what so ever. I always put my car in gear when parked anyways.

NHTSA ID # 12V567 Parking Brake on Manual Transmission
And there was a lot of discussion last winter about a frozen caliper.
Right down in issues and TSB's where it should be..
off to the the dark side
I put the e-brake on yesterday and as I was getting out the car started to roll forward. I pulled it up one more click (all the way) and it was fine but I have never noticed it happen before, even after having spent the first 6 months parking on a steep hill.
the rear brakes do wear and the cables need to be adjusted occasionally. maybe dependent on miles?
i'm slated for the recall and i'll be going in next week along with my oil change. but i have had no issues at all.
Me niether. The brake wont be 100% the entire life of the car and does need periodic maintenance regardless of a recall.
I just got the notice Tuesday on the brake recall. My Velo is in the dealer now. Only two recalls in 1 1/2 years, not too bad. But, my previous car, 2007 Honda Fit, had 1 in 5 years. Good car, but style was dated. At the time, it was the only vehicle available in our area with +40MPG possible.
The dealership here is good, not great, but way better than the GM dealer in town.
Glad it only applies to less than 5000 cars, but since I rushed right out and bought one in the fall of '11, it applies to mine.
This whole recall has been a nightmare for me. I had to the recall fix done, went to work 130 miles away the next day, had the rear brake caliper dragging the whole way. The burning smell was horrible and my gas mileage went down considerably. Got back from work a couple days later (I work away most of the time) took my car straight to the dealership, they told me the caliper was bad and had nothing to do with the recall work (yeah...) They got me a rental car, two days later picked up my car, took off down the road. Got to a red light, pushed my brakes, and nothing. I started panicking. I pushed as hard as I could and they started working. I had to move my seat closer because I have to push the pedal down to the floor before they work. I don't know if there is air in the line or if the master cylinder went bad. I checked the brake fluid and that's fine. So back to the dealer I go tomorrow morning. I have been in once a month everything for the 14 months I've owned it.
Manual Base Marathon Blue Veloster, but my friends may call her Victoria.
My parents had a Daewoo that the handbrake stayed on, even though the handle released in the cabin - lots of smoke from burnt rear brakes, Daewoo fixed it under warranty without a word - I found out later it was a known problem, along with continually blowing the right hand headlight & indicator bulbs - no recalls for it at all though.

I got my recall notice Tuesday, went in Thursday only to leave and find out my parking brake doesn't work now. So back to the dealer tomorrow morning so I hopefully feel safe parking on my hill..

I had my car in on Thursday. It turns out that one of the rear brake callipers were seized up and had to wait for them to get one over-nighted. Seems to work fine now and I noticed that they must have tightened up the cable on the hand brake because there's a lot more tension in it now.
Got the recall warning. Based on the other posts...I'm not exactly thrilled to get it done.
so i never ended up getting the recall completed, as you would have it yesterday the brakes were frozen.
certainly getting them checked out next week. for sure.
had mine done at a dealer close to work. Took 2 visits so far. They didn't have the caliper kit for the 1st visit and SA told me a story how they only order the kit if replacement is needed and they had to order it for me eventhough my's not bad. They didn't end up giving the car back to me at the time promised. Whatever, went in again yesterday and had it done. It's now scary to push the brakes because it has to travel further down before it works. Feels exactly like someone didn't bleed the air out of the new caliper properly. Will go back for a 3rd visit. What a waste of time.

Had mine done this week. It took about 1 1/2 hours including oil change. Calipers were replaced. No issues.

So they decided to apply this fix to my car, which isn't even a manual I might add. God.... Please give me patience if they screw this up. I've had so many problems with this car that I certainly don't need another.
Isn't it shameless they specifically tell you to give them to perfect scores on the surveys every time?

I havent had the recall notice but the calipers seized on me! they fixed but now the handbrake is tight as f*ck
Keep it gangster.
I fill out the surveys based on the service I've been provided, which has been anything but stellar. I rated them a "Very Dissatisfied" and "I will not recommend Hyundai to anyone" on each survey I get. So far I haven't gotten a single call from them even though it always asks me if I would like one, which I always answer with a "Yes." I think I've gotten a total of 5 survey so far, and each one has suffered my wrath. This just proves to me that Hyundai really doesn't care, and being my luck, they'll call me the day I purchase a new car.
