I think the Clio Bonnet and Scenic Window Mirrors issues - both clearly identify a flaw in the VOSA Recall system - but more importantly, highlight that Renault don't give a rats about the lifes and safety of its customers.

It's simply the same attitude of waiting for the cars to naturally be taking off the road, as Vass20 implied above!!

MORE importantly, there is an apparent mis-communication in VOSAs letter - it should clearly state "RECALL NOTIFICATION" on the top of the letter. Without this the whole thing does not all under the Recall process!! So why aren't they recalling the cars - probably because in doing so it then gets registered on the EU-wide RAPEX database - so there is a paper-trail left on this issue.

No wonder when you look up recalls on VOSA's website, and the RAPEX database - hardly anything recent is listed...

What's going on?
