VW: handbrake - when parking the car i back

Customer Question

I recently bought a VW Tiguan with auto handbrake - when parking the car i always use the manual handbrake also. Last friday after parking the car at work, it rolled forward and into the fence - when myself and a colleague entered the car the handbrake light was clearly on.
Took car back to dealer who cannot find a fault and now VW will not accept responsibility for the bodywork damage.
Obviously going forward i will have to leave the car in gear, however i know the handbrake was on when i left the car.
Any ideas.........

Sorry for the delay . Honestly its going to be your word against theres because there are no faults in the system . What i would do is call Vw of America customer service they may be able to help you out this will be only other thing you can try if the dealer has not helped you out . I hope this helps.
