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.
hi,i am so glad that you and your family managed to get out of the car safely,i agree renault should sort this problem out once and forall before someone does lose their life due to this fault.
