More than 1,000 motorists who have suffered serious engine failures, represented by Toulouse lawyer Christoph Lèguevaques, have formally called on Renault to negotiate compensation and, if they do not, promise to “obtain civil and criminal convictions” through collective action.
“Motorgate”. Under this code, more than a thousand motorists gathered to take collective action against Renault, initiated by Toulouse lawyer Me Christoph Lèguevaques, according to a press release from the MyLeo specialist platform, published on Tuesday 24. Last January, our team on these worrying engine problems described in detail How many diamond brand owners have claimed to have fallen victim to these brutal failures. All were users of Renault (Clio, Captur, Kadjar, Kangoo, Megane, Scenic), Dacia (Duster, Dokker or Lodgy) and Nissan (Pulsar, Juke and Qashqai) models, equipped with a 1.2 l TCe petrol engine, manufactured between 2012 and 2016.
They want to attack Renault: “When we suddenly fell from 110 to 30 km / h, we got close to the accident”
Me Lèguevaques confirms that the cause of these failures is a “structural defect” which “causes excessive oil consumption leading to significant damage to the combustion chambers”. And that Renault “knew this, but never withdrew its dangerous vehicles,” which, according to the lawyer, poses a “threat to the lives of others.”
Today, therefore, 1113 motorists say they are ready to take the iron to court. Renault has been sent a formal invitation issued on behalf of these users: it offers the brand negotiations to “quickly” compensate the owners and former owners of the vehicles concerned. Otherwise, the “collective guerrilla” will be implemented by the bearer of the collective action, “which will highlight the discrepancies between your words and your actions and contribute to obtaining civil and criminal convictions.” According to the newspaper, the French car group is to respond to this order by June 5.
