I have a Renault Twizy which has developed a sticking accelerator pedal. It still accelerates when I take my foot off and brake. It is obviously dangerous so I arranged to have it taken to Renault dealers Toomey in Southend-on-Sea. Needless to say, no courtesy car. The guy who came with the flat bed truck was very helpful though. It is now awaiting their one and only electrical engineer to look at it next Friday - a whole week to wait before anything can happen. I will put something in the dealership thread too but honestly, they are so rubbish. I know there were lots of posts about sticking throttles back in 2012/2013 and I thought my Twizy had been sorted out nicely before I bought it. I have never had a moment’s trouble even in the dreadful winter of early 2013 and last winter’s endless floods. The fault was negligible early in the week, it just snapped back instead of coming back smoothly but yesterday I took my foot off to let someone go over at a zebra crossing and the car kept going. Very, very scary. I apologised profusely. They were fine about it but I was shaking. I limped back the half mile to work and called Toomey’s up straight away. Six hours later, the recovery vehicle came.
Toomey’s cannot sort out a courtesy car. They said to call Renault customer services! Good joke that, they’re closed at the weekend. This was after phoning literally over 20 times since 9 am (and it’s 2pm now). Apparently the Service Department is busy serving customers. Obviously I’m not one!
Anyway, I shall post back with their findings and will drive it for a bit to see how it goes but now I am nervous and not sure if I can trust it again.
