I have a 54 plate Renault Grand Scenic and the same thing happened to my bonnet on the M3 at 70 mph.

The vehicle was checked 30 mins before by MOD police at Porthsmouth Dockyard. I closed the bonnet myself, dropping it from the required height. When I got onto the A3M and built up speed I saw the bonnet flutter for a split second and then crashed up into the windscreen.

Renault claimed they had no previous incidents, but when I went to pick the car up after repairs had been efected I was told that a modification had been carried out.

Sadly this was at the same time as my Mum died so I never followed it up. I have e mailed BBC Watchdog this evening to advise them it may not just be clio safty catches.
