    Re: 2200 miles and its going into the dealership already!

    my brother had something similar with a VW Passat, it never worked right from day one. The dealership ended up buying it back off him but he lost a fair amount on it (he had done quite a bit more than 2200 miles though).

    the car is obviously not 100% after they've worked on it and they are just trying to fob you off.........w**kers.

    Good luck with getting it sorted.

    What happens if Renault technical department don't want to look at it, have you decided what route you'd go down, either trade in or legal?

    surely this indicates a brake biasing problem rather than a tracking issue? Sould almost like the N/S brake is being applied all the time and then when you brake its casuing it to break more than the drivers side, thus it pulls to the left? Maybe they just need bleeding or one of the pipes has been pinched going to the drivers side? Would explain why the ESP light keeps coming on...

    That's appalling mate.

    Renaultsport models are marketed and sold on their capability and heritage. They're just hiding behind the fact that it's a road car.

    It's no longer 'fit for purpose' if it has the faults you've mentioned.

    Iv not read the whole thread, have you offered to take the manager out to show the issues or is he relying on the work they have done in w.shop?

    Re: 2200 miles and its going into the dealership already!

    cheers for the support guys, just to answer a few questions briefly im on my phone.... ar behaves its self under braking on road most of the time its the 70mph+ situations so dealership struggle to replicate the fault. I agree its a brake hydraulic issue not all down to the tracking however this is still an issue for me, the cars not as pin point as it should be and its eating its tyres. Not sure what route to go down if technical are not interested, legal sound stressful and expensive, trade in is no hastle but expensive and fixing it myself with a garage i trust isnt right i shouldnt have to but it solves my problems!! Sorry for the lack of paragraphs my badass nokia doesnt let me press enter lol

    Has nobody a bit senior from the RenaultSport forum not been in touch? Tried Jeremy Townsend?

    Not good publicity for them at all.

    Dealerships are glorified back street garages. So annoying too because you'll only find 1 or 2 places that'll actually give a crap about your car.

    Re: 2200 miles and its going into the dealership already!

    heres a few snippets from the dealership sales material issued from the manufacturer to help sell the car i purchased.. ie. the one i wrongly assumed was designed to be used for trackdays....

    Cnuts.

    RUK are scrotums.

    They phoned me up to arrange something for my 200 and I told them I sold the car and got an Audi as their customer serivice is appalling. The girl on the phone was genuinley speechless LOL.

    What a complete pisser, genuinely shocked at the lack of after sales service that they've extended to you.

    Re: 2200 miles and its going into the dealership already!

    its got to the point now that im booking it into progrip in larbert to have all the front end geometry points removed and refitted and aligned 100% perfect. ordering a set of DS2500's all round for it and ill also get progrip to strip all the brakes off it, clean and service them, fit them all back on with a fresh fluid change and that will be me stress free but out of pocket! but atleast it will sorted

    plus now that ive realised warranty means ZERO when you cant trust the garages offering it, i may as well go back to my old days of modifying! Akrapovic anyone?

    i love the car just the bad experiance so far has been terrible but its time to get the car back to the way it should be and enjoy it!

    Good for you if thats what you are happy to do mate, we live and learn.

    Making me think twice about ever buying a new Renault tbh!

    You should make RUK aware that you have updated at least 2 forums with every update, maybe just a link to the service manager for this thread and your login details would be an eye-opener!

    Re: 2200 miles and its going into the dealership already!

    I just think this is the best way out for you, the least bad outcome. Someone over on RS suggested getting this work done but at the same time logging the work minutely and then presenting the dealer with the bill and the log of work and the threat of action but most of all you need to get this finished for you.
