2006 Renault Megane Break 1.5 dCi105 Confort Expre 1.5 dCi105
Better than I expected
Averaged 4.9l/100km (almost 60 mpg imperial) with cruise control set at 136 km/hr (around 83 mph) between Monte Carlo and Montpellier - so seriously economic.
Quiet at those speeds.
The small engine plays above its weight for acceleration.
The suspension is too soft - OK on motorways, but not on back roads.
Don't like the electric power steering.
This car is ex-Rental car from Spain. I bought it at a very good price, and expected a few problems.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Update on this car.
It now has 70,000km and the following problems have occurred:
Water in under floor storage boxes; caused by blocked drain pipes from the A/C.
A/C thermostat needed replacing.
Squeak from NSF suspension.
Random warning lights appearing on dash.
The car is getting loose with more noise and rattles.
Not too bad overall (I paid about half price at 6 months old).

Now 140,000 km.
The A/C problem was the compressor; parts and labour replaced under warranty.
Replaced one electric window winder mechanism.
