This has happened to me, I was very angry. I'm currently taking Renault to Small Claims Court under the Consumer Protection Act. Has anyone else tried this?
At the moment, I feel the communication regarding this issue is very fragmented, taking place in several online locations, without much coordination. For example, the following sites are regularly updated:
- Renault Forums
- Parkers Forum
- AutoExpress Forum
I've created a Google Group (essentially a mailing list you can join if you are interested in a subject). I'd ask if you are interested, then join the group. We know from Watchdog that there have been over 1,000 reported incidents, yet we are not able to leverage these people because we don't know how to contact them.
In summary - we will have a lot more leverage with Renault, and far greater lobbying power if we begin to work together, and this group aims to provide a method to combine forces and aid communication.
Please join the group at:
