Summary:

Not bad

General Comments:

64.000 km now with good overall performance. Very nice engine and brakes, but not a good suspension and gearbox I think. The worst of the car is the dealer.

The size is for a coupe version, but unfortunately we don't have that one here in Colombia.

Is the only one with ABS, and Airbags on its segment, I fully recommend this car.

It needs more space for the people in the back seats, those aren't comfortable at all. Needs better tires also, the car has 14" wheels, with 175/65 tires. I bought 185/60 and worked perfectly.

I'm selling it now because I'm gonna buy a Volkswagen Gol.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Oh well, I'm gonna have to think on it, I don't like corsa or fiesta. Those cars are cheaper than the VW Gol, but also have less equipment.

Another Clio is a possibility, but I want to have a car different from Renault. I need to try another dealer.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Try a Hyundai Getz 1.6, reliable and fast. You won't be disappointed, I also had a Clio.
