Parking brake

I have the regular foot parking brake and it doesn't seem to matter how hard I press it down - the vehicle moves when I remove my foot from the brake. My driveway is a slight angle, does anyone else have this issue?

Mine had to be adjusted for same issue. If it is adjusted properly at the wheels then adjustment requires removing the center console. There is a time period where such adjustments are covered under warranty but I don't remember what it is. Otherwise it is considered normal maintenance.

I just bought it beginning of June, so should be covered. Thanks for your feedback.

I was told by my (Canada) dealer that for upto 20,000km and 1 year that adjustments are covered under warranty (all 4 tyres on my vehicle needed to be balanced).

How many clicks do you do? In the manual, it tells you how many clicks it should make for optimum braking force. For foot pedal parking brakes, I think its 5 or 6 clicks.

Doesn't matter if I do 5, 6 or to the floor, the vehicle still moves after releasing the foot brake and i can feel the pressure on the shifter.
