hi, if my car has missed a recall, am I entitled to call my renault dealer to check my car just in case. I say this as I am the second owner and have no invoices or paperwork regarding work down for any of the recall notices stated in the previous post?

I lost count of the number of recalls we had on our Citroen Picasso and the number of warranty repairs done - these were the main reasons for selling it when the warranty ran out. We did not get any paperwork from the Citroen Dealer to say any of the work had been carried out, they just said that all details were on the computer and should we ever need to query it they could simply look up on the computer.

This didn't inspire much confidence from a shoddy dealer who had to delay the repair/service of all its Citroens for 3 days because the main computer had crashed!! This included the diagnostic and ECU re-programming software.

If it's the 2.0IDE petrol engine, then mine went in for the recall a few months ago. Apparently it's something to do with the car failing to conform to its published emissions figures.

As a bonus, my car had always faltered when it got to around 6000rpm, but pulls smoothly right up to the red-line after reprogramming. At least it does when the limiter lets me go right the way up there - at times, it seems to have a mind of its own. Fuel economy doesn't appear to have improved in the slightest (I don't think my driving style has changed, but I'm still averaging 30mpg if I'm lucky) so I can't see how emissions will have improved.

The VOSA recall list doesn't mention this one, but I think manufacturers are only obliged to log recalls with the VOSA if they have safety implications.
