Generally the summary from the BBC Watchdog snippet - was:
1. BBC Watchdog recognises the issue hasn't gone away.
2. BBC Watchdog questions Renault's and VOSA's "investigation" statements - after all the problems are continuing and Clio Mk-2/Campus owner's have not received their "invitation" letters.
3. VOSA/Renault unchanged on their attitude or stance on the matter - quoting previous statements
4. BUT Renault will re-sent the "invitation" letter to the ~1/2 million owner base for the Clio Mk2/Campus (recorded delivery).
5. We are still no closer in getting Renault to admit the fault, and financial recompense those who have been adversely affected etc. Grrrr!!!
6. We still have and will continue to see cases reported - once the second letter is "received" by all owners, Renault will then wash their hands and say that they have "warned" everyone of the risk, and it's then the owner's responsibility to ensure the catch mechanism is lubricated etc.
Case close - hmmm.....
What do you all think of this?
I think it almost signifies closure, doesn't it - well from a liability viewpoint, but is it a root-cause resolution - of course not!
