Renaultrenault scenic unsafe

Review updated:

I’m coming on the N3 south at 120km/h without knowing a puncture is busy deflating my back tyre, in a moment I hear so much noise on the side of the Scenic sound like the manifold exhaust got loose, then I make an emergency stop, end up with the left tyre pushing against the wall of the drain of the highway; Without thinking twice I switch off the motor and you know in the Scenic as soon you stop the motor the hand brake comes on so I left the scenic with the front when pushing against the side wall and the hand break holding the wheel under pressure almost like a vase grip, no strange later the steering got damage, then jump to see what happen, the back tyre on the left got destroy, I was running on the rims, I did not overturn that Scenic because god is everywhere; Change the tyre in 15min, then was time to go, put the card inside press start and for my surprise I hear some click noise inside the dashboard and then the message “Steering Locked “ I move the steering without problem but I keep on getting that message, the car is perfect the steering is not locked, all the electronic works but because of the bloody link in between the steering lock and the CPU of the scenic it made believe to the CPU that the wheels are locked and the CPU don’t allowed the motor to start. I wait 3hours in the border of one of the busiest highways in South Africa waiting for the AA in middle afternoon approaching peak hour.There are so many brilliant people in Renault how no one think that how much more dangerous is for the occupants of any car with that stupid
"steering lock"? be stranded in the middle of nowhere in South Africa, not Europe, than let the driver flip a switch that will override the link in between the CPU and the steering lock allowing the family to reach their destination?;

    Without thinking twice I switch off the motor and you know in the Scenic as soon you stop the motor the hand brake comes on so I left the scenic with the front when pushing against the side wall and the hand break holding the wheel under pressure almost like a vase grip, no strange later the steering got damage, then jump to see what happen, the back tyre on the left got destroy, I was running on the rims, I did not overturn that Scenic because god is everywhere; Change the tyre in 15min, then was time to go, put the card inside press start and for my surprise I hear some click noise inside the dashboard and then the message “Steering Locked “ I move the steering without problem but I keep on getting that message, the car is perfect the steering is not locked, all the electronic works but because of the bloody link in between the steering lock and the CPU of the scenic it made believe to the CPU that the wheels are locked and the CPU don’t allowed the motor to start.
