Hand Operated Parking Brake Concern Safety Recall 1217F


Mazda 6 touring
I received an "Important Safety Recall" on August 19, 2017 from Mazda about my 6's parking brake. I did not do anything about it at the time but over the last couple of months my parking brake has basically stopped working. So I called my dealer today, who informed me that Mazda has not released a fix or this problem (i.e. they won't fix it under the safety recall - I have to pay for it).

WTF - three months after an "Important Safety Recall" and there is no fix? There is even an NHTSA Campaign No. 17V-393.

Sorry if this has been discussed already. Has anyone else had to deal with this? Is is just an issue with the six speed manual transmission cars (and therefore not common as my dealer claims)?
