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

Oh and we know that the the %age correction means that 550 MOT failures on the Clio-2 are to do with the bonnet catch failures.

This remains quite inaccurate as
1) it dates back to a 2007 statistic, per VOSA's quote in their response above;
2) it doesn't take the FACTS of cases...i.e. we have notably seen '000's (thousands) of reported cases (websites, facebook, forums, watchdog, media etc), so 550 is an EXTREMELY conservative figure and widely off the mark.

Anyway, your views welcome, as always!

Got a nice response from the Shadow Transport Minister, but will rather see post-6th May to see whether something can happen RE this safety defect matter (and the VOSA's crap policies)!
