Re: BBC Watchdog report :: Faulty Renault Clio bonnet catches

Brigatti as you mention - VOSA are a waste of space. The fact that they allow the vehicle manufacturers to carry out their own investigation is testiment to that. Plus they really do not like making waves and are fairly limp-wristed in their approach doesn't help.

The only reason I got anywhere with the whole Scenic door mirror switch recall (sorry Quality Campaign) is that it was a part fitted inside the door with no user servicable parts and not mentioned in any service schedule. I am still being contacted by Scenic owners who's cars are bursting into flames and taking other cars / property with them. Thankfully nobody has been killed yet.

I hope you can get somewhere but it doesn't look great does it?
