Summary:

Renault fever forever....

Faults:

* The clutch cable snapped once.

* The radiator fan switch failed but it's the same for most Renaults.

* Bulbs behind the LCD display.

* Left fog lamp replaced under warranty because it had water inside.

General Comments:

Great car, the engine is near perfect, it needs to be pushed to 3700 rpms to unleash the power but it can easily run over most "performance cars" like Cavalier Z24s and Tiburons.

The gearbox is a little notchy when cold but an oil change solved this.

Petrol consumption is around 10 l/100kms.

Rear seat access is not so great as the trunk space, maybe because my last car was a R25.....
