By the way, I did post a forum link to a "free survey" poll - with basic questions on when people last inspected under the bonnet, how far in the journey - and this was done in the thick of these cases being file.

Results: 6 people completed it!

Unfo, the free poll closed on 31st Dec 2006 - and I couldn't get them to re-open without paying for it (okay small cost - but I don't have the resource to keep a poll open-ended with hardly anyone completing it!).

I agree it would have been handy to get more data, but the resources we have available are also useful - posting onto this forum, submit a case to Renault UK, file a case to VOSA, and if required get an independent report of the damage caused. Also file a case to the Society of Motor Manufactures - as they can also offer advice on liability (who is responsible for the issue!).
