Quick update: Watchdog just gave a further update and gave a plug to the Clio Alerts Google Group...

They emphasised that since first reporting the incident, they receive approx 6 new cases each week - and cases continue to happen.

They also mentioned the outcome of VOSAs shameful investigation - and paraphrased Renault UK's notification to vehicle owners.

MORE Importantly, they mentioned two other Renault models are at risk - as follow the same catch design! I have a feeling this is probably the main reason for the huge cover-up by Renault and VOSA - it's a multi-million issue if they had to recall EVERY Renault vehicle in the UK / Global - that used the same design/parts. Shameful, $$$$ comes first, hey?
