Not sure when they started fitting the buzzers.
Apparently an audible warning as well as visual gets 1 extra point in the NCAP ratings.
I think Renault introduced it on the Laguna, when Toyota became the second manufacturer to get a 5* rating with the Avensis - it beat the Laguna by 1 point. Renault fitted the audible warning so they were "equal" top again for safety! Not sure if it was 2002 or 2003!
Thats great thank you
