Sorry all for lack of responses - been on a few business trips whilst I've been back and swamped with various social events (hard life you know this 2007 malarkey!).

Anyway, saw quite a few of these recent postings - a lot seem to be replicating the all too familiar reports of incidents...

Funny that if there were isolated and small numbers, Renault could argue the causes of them, but a growing number (of the same type of incidents) and the very fact Watchdog are intending to revisit (don't worry I'm setting my Video already!), is enough proof that this is not going away.

You know something, thinking logically and strategically, I can see the Renault's plot. Fob off everyone until the time when the cars are all replaced with the newer models (i.e. the old model versions are scrapped) and the problem goes away! Cos we all know that the new designed catch doesn't seem to pose the same issues!! Subtle but brilliant hey? - this seems their plan!!

But I think we MUST remain committed to fight this - even to name and shame them!

Will shortly post an additional note, as I've heard something back from VOSA (including the head of the group) and Renault UK / Renault France (including from the CEO's office!)....not pleasant reading I'm afraid!!!!!
