Re: Renault Clio 2 - Bonnet Catch Failures

Last night my poor wife was on an 'A' road on the way to pick me up from an evening function in Aylesbury. Not long into her drive the bonnet popped up and rammed against her windscreen in a sudden, violent and terrifying manner. Fortunately, she was on the verge of a lay-by and managed to pull in just in time to prevent an emergency stop. Having spent the last 2 hours doing a bit of research on the internet I find it simply staggering that this 'accident' is 6 years in the tooth and .... the argument still rages as to whether this is a design fault or negligence on the owners part! We have not been able to contact Renault as they are closed on the weekend but I can assure you they will hear from me on come Monday!
