Noel.... I'm shocked
You're not saying that Renault designers could have messed up something so basic as brake shoe design ???

Gotta say I've never had a bonded shoe or pad delaminate and have seen rivetted shoes cracking as you noted... though never failed.
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
