    Record it happening so you've got proof! Then they'll have to investigate it.

    One other possibility is the seat belt, if it's like the Passat you have to have the seat belt on for the brake to release, if the belt is sloppy and thinks it's not clipped in this could be why yours won't release, 1st cheap fix I'd try is battery off overnight so it's all reset.



    Belt doesn't need to be clipped in. However, if the handbrake is on and engine running, when you clip it in you can hear the handbrake motor getting ready to release.
