2008 Renault Grand Scenic 1.5 dci
Excellent choice so far
Nothing, I've had the car for just 1 week.
Very early to comment of course, but my first impressions are very favorable. Grand Scenic drives well, roomy, comfortable, comes with all the electronic gizmo's (automatic lights, automatic hand break, automatic warnings, parking assistant, cruise control, key-less start, etc etc). The small 1.5 diesel (105 HP) does the job very well, both in town and on the motorway. All in all, a car of an different generation than my previous 1997 Toyota Carina. Fingers crossed that it will continue to be excellent.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
Review Date: 24th February, 2008
Update @ 8000 km : "oil level incorrect" warning light came on... phoned Renault assistance and was told to add 0.5 liter of oil. "Oil level OK" now, but is this normal?
I've had the car now for just over 1 year, 18.000 km, no problems. Average fuel consumption around 6,8 l/100 km. Pros : versatile car, drives well
Cons : interior could be better finished, some rattles in the back ; diesel smell on cold start.
Good engine. Averaging 950kms on a tank of diesel.
Paint job still looks great.
Electrics (bulbs, lights, 12v point) not as good as my old Toyota.
Replaced front tyres at 45000km.
Original owner again, @60.000:
I need to replace front tyres (and back ones in approx 10.000 km). Otherwise nothing to report. Car runs well.
At 75.000 km : passed first MOT, no problems (except rear fog lights not working). Had it checked before MOT by a garage (a 670 euro bill for 2 new back tyres, oil, front brake pads, work... ouch).
Nothing much to report, average fuel consumption 6.5 l/100 km.
Original owner at 115,000 km:
Excellent car really, no problems, good engine, comfortable car even fully loaded with 5 adults and a dog!
Some of the trim is starting to loosen a bit (boxes in front doors and side boxes in the trunk), but very satisfied.
