Re: Renault Clio 2 - Bonnet Catch Failures

The above post is the type which really annoys me...

Renault can't really win here; if they do nothing, they are accused of negligence and placing customers (and others) in danger due to a poor design creating the risk of a bonnet flipping open & striking the screen. (check the forums and you'll find plenty of examples)

Yet if they do something about it - people moan that their time has been wasted....

Not having a 'pop' at anyone in particular, but at the end of the day, the manufacturer is doing what is humanly possible to rectify a situation. I used to hear the same stuff spouted when I worked for Ford.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
