Leaving a roundabout, throttle stuck open causing me to have to correct ss the car slid out, but couldn’t brake and steer as the accelerator pushed me on into a lamp post… Slight offset crash, no airbag went off. Damaged the front roll bar mount and near side front wheel damaged and at an odd angle to the car body… Bruised my shin and my knee aches but otherwise ok. Now wait for recovery.
UPDATE FROM ADMINISTRATOR FOR THE ATTENTION OF RENAULT
Please read through this thread and other similar threads on this site. We have discovered that a number of Twizy owners on our forum are experiencing a very dangerous and serious issue with the throttle on their Twizys.
It appears that in cold/wet/damp weather, the accelerator pedal is becoming ‘stuck’. In other words, when you take your foot off the pedal, it stays where it is, fully pressed down and the Twizy accelerates on its own.
Some of our members have reported that pressing the brake does not cause the throttle to cut out. This is a very dangerous fault, and as you can see, one of our members has already crashed his Twizy because of this issue.
Please get in contact with us on this forum regarding this issue as firstly we need to fix the problematic Twizys and secondly we need to make sure that Renault accept liability for this members crash.
We would like to get this matter dealt with as swiftly as possible by Renault before the unthinkable happens.
