If your logbook says new at first registration in the UK then you know it will be on the database. It's nice to get some feeback as we could have lost our youngest son to the incident. Appreciate your comments and Renaultforums for getting this article out there!
It turned out that my Scenic had not been sorted. I took it over to the RUK Dealership in Kettering (northamptonshire) and they took it straight in, changed it out and handed her back. Even gave her a free check over as I told them it was my first car.

I make a point of talking to anyone i see getting into a phase II scenic now and telling them to get the door checked with Renault. You'd be suprised at the amount of people that do not know that they are driving a potential time bomb.

Currently in JObrien's garage:
Renault Megane Scenic
