new renault megane coupe 1.5 - Cruise control failure !

this is a new model and my husband and i were so glad to have it until two weeks ago we were driving and the cruise control failed to disengage, this caused us to have a major accident, my husband tried everything to disengage car, he pressed the breaks, the clutch everything , it didnt work, we ended up on the wrong side of the carriageway, lucky to be alive, has anyone has cruise control problems before? this has totally put us off renault cars, renault uk took almost two weeks to go to the body shop to inspect it, no courtesy car was offerd, the police did their investigation quick, were awaiting the results still, its two weeks now without a car, a major company should have been more helpful, to add insult to injury and yes i was injured, the local delearship didnt even inform renault uk that we had informed them of a problem with the vehicle, they just told us we will make a note that u came in. i mean to say if my children had been in the car, or if someone else may suffer the same, if we had died in the crash then renault wouldnt even have known there was a problem with our vehicle.

HI Rochelle.

God thats awful. Sorry hear this and about your accident. I hope you were not too badly injured.

Have you given Renault Customer services a call about this, as surely something went badly wrong with the car for it not to turn off the cruise control

We have a Renault representative aboard the forum, it may be worth sending him a private message which Im sure will get you some assistance in this matter. His forum named is RUK_Response. He may also find this thread and respond accordingly.

I've also renamed your thread slightly and moved to the appropriate section.

Kind Regards

Cruise Failure on new megane 1.9

I've just experienced the same problem with my new Megane, fortunately I managed to avoid an accident although still not sure how - Currently the car is in a Renault garage but they are saying they can't find anything wrong. I have emailed Rochelle for anymore info and also RUK_Response but until I get a reply I'm at a loss at what to do next
