Well, methinks a small victory beckons!

Renault UK has announced during the last week in the National Press that they are now officially recalling all Clio Mark-IIs for a safety inspection to reassure the public on the potential safety issue!  Personally, there is no "potential" issue, it IS AN ISSUE!

This is over 12months overdue having experienced the issue myself (scenario of a bonnet releasing itself without warning is not a pleasant experienced, especially whilst you are in motion!).  Question is, is whether this approach is their way to slowly admit that they are aware of the issue (we know they are unofficially!), and that they are therefore needing to prevent any further incidents occurring?  Personally, I feel this is a start but doesn't go far enough, as they should settle ALL CASES of the bonnet-release incidents - not just mine!  That's 1,000+ cases (probably more as this statistic was based in April 2007 to BBC Watchdog alone!).

I also feel that they should do a more formal recall, as I am aware that this recall doesn't sit under the VOSA Code of Practise, as the recall is not listed on their website Recall database.  So a "fudged" way of doing a recall at the manufacture's discretion?

Anyway, I will take this is a slight victory, but c'mon Renault the UK is just one market, you've got the global market to be concerned about!  At least, this will cost them millions of pounds alone!  Small penalty for something that they could have prevented all those months ago!
