Re: Where's my Scenic? Hub nuts loose?????

Thanks again to the respondents to my latest posting. Today (Thursday 21 April) RCS have finally advised me as to what the problem is. Apparently the hub nuts on the rear axle were loose or to be exact, were not tightened to the correct torque. When I asked why it takes over 3 weeks to tighten 8 wheel nuts even on a population of Scenics/Grand Scenics, I got a lot of waffle about how urgently Renault were treating this matter and how thorough they have to be with their checks etc.etc. - I was quite underwhelmed by the explanation but was assured it was the truth. Hmmm. Is this a sign of the times? I am reluctant to walk away from this deal as I was really looking forward to owning a Scenic even if some of the pleasurable anticipation has gone. Who knows - if I started again somewhere else with a different car, the same thing could happen???
