I remember it well, because when they'd finished and I got the keys back the girl said "oh, the mechanic reported a clunking noise when he drove it into the garage". "yes, love, that's the central locking..." Unbelievable!

Anyhow, seeing as it has been checked I think I'll just do what Renault do to most of their customers when they try and get in touch re faults - IGNORE THEM!
I would take it back, have it checked and make sure it is logged. That way if there are any problems you have proof they checked it.
