If my memory serves me correctly Ford had dash problems also featured on Watchdog.
I have also heard of Skoda and Beemers turbo -diesels eating their own engines. Again I think the Skoda issue was featured in Auto-Express some time ago where a guy took his car in for service and the turbo blew during a road test.
Personally I don't believe these type of problems are confined to the Renault makes and I am of the opinion these problems can be engineeered out yet manufacturers seem to do much about it. Even Toyota (always number one in the reliability ratings) have had their fare share of engine problems.
I ain't defending Renaults actions in any way but it seems the problems haunt all manufacturers nowadays.
