Yeah, you have to prepare for it, thankfully its not a random thing, happens in the same place, in the same way everytime. Its only scary when overtaking on a sharp left hand bend, (well sharp for a dual carriageway anyway). Its sounds like a mechanical problem yet its never been noticed by any garage, and its had at least 2 services like that.

Sounds reasonable but I mentioned to Kwik-Fit that the suspension made noise and the only think he could find wrong was the rubber. Maybe he just didnt bother looking properly, if only I could afford to take it to Renault. Thanks for your help though.
