All models from 1997 (Renault Clio Version 2 - I believe!) through the most recent "new" model lauched in 2006! So yes that's a lot of cars on the wrong with this dangerous "feature"!!!!!!!! Not a nice thought....just make sure you are not following too closely too one of those models!

All 2006 models have a "metal catch" which seems fine!
