Renault Scenic 2006 dashboard failed - known fault? Please help

Posted 25th Oct 2015
My car (a 2006 Renault megane scenic 1.6) dashboard failed on my way home tonight. As it is a full electronic display it was a rather dangerous journey back home in the dark; I couldn't see the speed/ oil level. Also the left/right signals and the hazard warning lights wouldn't switch on.

I will be calling Renault first thing tomorrow morning. Upon some googling I had found in a BBC Watchdog article that dashboard failure seems to be a known fault for the Scenic. A lot of people seem to say the repair would cost £500 which is quite a lot of money for a 9 year old car.

Is that a fair price to pay for an electronic dashboard repair? And since it appears to be a known fault can I possibly ask Renault to repair for a discount? Please help £500 is quite a lot for my family
