I agree with Horatio Renault. But make sure you keep the bill. When I had my old Lag 1 I noticed a bit of rust on the rear near side wing and tried claiming on the anti perf warranty. The Lag 1 when I had it was around 5 months old and had been a demo car with an independent Renault dealer who had by now 4 / 5 years later gone bust.

I was told to go to the Renault body shop, it took the guy there about 30 seconds to say no dice, theres been a repair on the nearside back wing unless YOU!!! can prove the repair was done either by Renault, or following Renault's procedures. How could I? The damage did'nt happen while I owned the car. So KEEP THE PROOF!!

Albeit I kept this car real clean. I never noticed it had been repaired, this cost me on this near side back wing the anti perf warranty.
BTW I did the repairs myself, I was lucky, the rust never did come back, and the paint job, it looked good too.

I would use an offical renault bodyshop as it will all be recorded and then they can't attempt to swerve out of or avoid any future waranty claims. Sutton park at Rugby fobbed me off because it had been painted before and not by renault. but painting a scratch should not void your warranty with regards to strucural or materail failures in the future

JP Frost I can reccomended Aylesbury Panel Craft ( right at the end of ravens lane - just past that furniture world place )..

Had the clio repaired and was a faultless job..

Did take them a while to complete the job but it was worth the wait..

Also ( if they offer your a courtesy car ) DON'T opt for a Nissan !!
