Serious Safety Problem

Serious Safety Problem

I am interested to know if any other Kangoo owners have experienced the same problem that my wife has now suffered 3 times & has resulted in her leg being stitched twice, today my brother needed 4 stitches because of the same problem.

The problem centres on the front driver & passenger doors. On exerting the car she has caught her leg on the bottom corner of the door, each time coursing a serious gash to her leg. Today my brother cut his leg on the drivers door.

We have spoken to the local Renault dealer who claims that there has not been any other reported incidents regarding this matter.

Has anybody else experienced this problem?

My Kind Regards
Paul Hughes

Hello and Welcome to the Forums Paul.

I have not heard of this problem either, But as Chris says we have a number of Kangoo members who maybe have experienced similar problems.

Question Serious Safety Problem

Hi Paul,
Had my Kangoo from new, 2001 & never had a problem with what you describe, nor has SWMBO who is the main driver. I can't imagine how your wife & brother have caught their legs on the door corners.
