I have major concerns as i have a young family and if my car poses a risk to them, it needs fixing, tomorrow! Can someone provide hard facts that Renault know about this problem as i am going to take this further.
I think you might have hit the nail on the head! For Renault to admit that a recall is required right now and in the meantime another vehicle catches fire, technically they would not be in a very good position. Please trust me that they are fully aware of the issue regarding what has so far only affected 2000/01 model Scenics (I am not saying it is limited to 2000/01 years only though).

To re-iterate what ottoman has already said, they have not finalised the whole issue yet regarding what models / years will be rectified only that they will contact owners directly when they are ready.

I totally understand your fears and if you go back a few pages I posted up a way of totally negating the risk of fire in the meantime. I am a bit disappointed that Renault would not give me any "Official" words on the subject but rest assured it is in hand and VOSA are dealing with it also.
