This really made me laugh....

Remember the point that this IS NOT an official recall - it's just a letter of advice by the manufacturer - legal difference, as VOSA has ZERO powers to enforce anything (or better still, don't WANT to enforce anything!)...

Mr Sweeting who heads up the VSB advised that it may require a 3 letter, Renault says nah 2 is enough! what is VOSA going to do about it, just ask nicely again?

Absolute bonkers.....what is the matter with the attitude of the Government agencies and Global mega-powers these days? They think they can get away with murder...whoops I just remembered that they can (Dr Kelly comes to mind!) - conspiracy theories galore!
