Clio bonnet catch

Hi, I'm another Clio owner with the bonnet catch problem.

On Saturday 4 November my son was driving the Clio on M8 near Glasgow when bonnet flipped open smashing the windscreen and damaging the bonnet and roof.

Fortunately the road was quiet (surprisingly)and he was able to bring the car to a stop without further incident.

I've since found this site and the Watchdog report which suggests this is not an isloated incident.

The Renault dealer has told us that they have seen this problem a number of times however it is unlikely that Renault will accept liability and have suggested we claim on our insurance.

My concern is that some other driver is not going to be so lucky and this problem will lead to a fatality.

Suggestions on who I should write to, to add my voice to the other reported incidents would be appreciated.

Lucky mum
