but what about the other models that are based on the Clio, by which i mean the Kango van and estate car, do these have the same bonnet catch problems, assuming they use the same parts, does anyone know ?.

maybe these should be re-called as well !!???

no they don't. the kangoo opens from the bulkhaed and is a completely different mechanism. its corrosion and poor maintainance that does forthem. the only other model that uses the same mechanism is the trafic, but they seem fine. differnt front panel angles mean water finds it harder to get to i suppose.
