volvo have been using handbrake shoes since 1967 with no problems at all . well proven technology . only in the recent years have there been minor problems with shoes that have not been inspected for many years . also materials change , you will never beat a parking brake on a 140 or a 240 for example , sometimes a 2000- 2007 onwards volvo may match it when it top condition ..
