1999 Renault Megane RXE Break 1.4 16v 70kw


Big family car with a lot of fun for good price, and with low running costs


I have this car nearly for one year, guarantee has expired before 3 months - I have two small problems in last year:

Oil was disappearing out of the oil van - only a little bit.

Some noise coming from the rear left window - problem with a rubber part.

In Renault service they repaired these two problems very quickly in guarantee - so no problem, they have also replaced the battery - they told me it was from some bad series or something.

General Comments:

I like this car - it is only a 1.4 liter engine, but with nearly 100 HP it is doing with such a big car amazing things. My personal record is 220 km/h. So you can drive very fast if you want or need, but on other side, running costs are very low.

In the city (Prague) it consumes about 7.5-8.5 l/100km, on the motorway if you are going about 150km/h about 7l, and on roads outside the city about 5.5-6.5 l/100km.

This estate has useful volume of 1.6m3 - the largest in the segment.

This car is really comfortable and brings lot of features as standard in this class - for example 4 airbags, ABS, full electric windows, locks, mirrors... for very good price.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
