well i'm gutted reading this thread as my car has just been written off because of this fault i guess.

it was a 55 plate and i only had it 6 months as a used car. i smelt mild burning smell but thought it was fumes from cars in front on the second day whilst taking my 3 children to school smoke poured through the dashboard, thankfully i evacuated everyone and within minutes my dash was on fire and it completed melted.

i am very cross that this is an obvious fault and renault should have done more to notify this as a fault as it could have cost me my family if i hadn't taken such swift action.

i loved this car but now i have had to change to a touran as i can't trust a renault and my kids are scared that all cars will have a fire.
