Re: Renault Clio 2 - Bonnet Catch Failures

VOSA said as the salt on the roads is very corrosive and when gettin cars washed the chemicals used can be corrosive. My argument was the same how come it only happens to clios and some other renaults. He advised me that its because of the materials used and design of the vehicle, so surely this is a design fault, but apparently not, it just requires more maintenance than other vehicles which i was unaware of as have never done this on any other car ive had and neither parents have ever maintained the catches on their vehicles. I thinks its something that needs looking into more or making sure all customers are aware this is part of the service shedual as then i wud have checked like i do my levels, oil , coolant etc.
