Summary:

Endless money pit

Faults:

My head gasket blew twice in 10000 kilometers.

Worn turbo.

Worn clutch.

Alternator fault.

Worn seats.

General Comments:

This car is seriously quick and handles like it's on rails.

You drive it hard for two days, then you fix it twenty days.

Expensive, unreliable, and very, very fast.

Worst car Renault ever build.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
