No, I haven’t been made aware of the fact that I shall have to pay for any of it; I’d be a lot more than surprised, if I had / was.

But it is rather concerning, will the same turbo destruction occur again at 32,000 miles, and ditto at 48,000 miles, add infinitum?

Moreover what effects will, what appears to be ongoing problems of this nature have on the resale value of these cars?

Second owner Renaults are not known for retaining good resale value, without seemingly ongoing problems like this.
Currently in hondo's garage:
1.6 Valve-Matic SR. Red hot, toasty feet.
