Default Parking brake problems

I own a 2007 Aura XE, bought back in November of 2006. It's run very well, with almost no problems, until recently.

In February of this year, at about 24,000 miles, the parking brake failed as I was setting it - I something go "sproing!" inside, and then there was no tension on it at all. I eventually had to take it to the local dealer to get the assembly replaced (it was under warranty though, so replacement was free.) The new parking brake worked just fine, up until about a week or so, when it appears the same thing happened again - and I've only driven about 6,000 miles since the first replacement.

Anyone else ever had this problem? I've hardly ever heard of a parking brake failing, and the only one I do know of was on a vehicle that had about 100k miles on it. I have just over 30k on mine, and I'm looking at a third brake already. Any ideas on why these keep failing? Thanks.

Default Re: Parking brake problems

The parking brake on my old 03 Ford Focus used to go "sproing!" everytime I set them They used to fix it under warranty at about every second oil change I wonder if the technology or materials have changed since the good old days of never having to worry about that thing. Anyway, I've been avoiding inclines since !
