Summary:

One of the best cars ever built by Renault

Faults:

So far I cannot complain about any item that broke of my fully equipped R 25.

Even the automatic gear is working properly so far (but as far as I know it was replaced at 80000 km before I got the car)

Only the brakes on the rear are a matter of frequent repair. This I was told is typical for the R 25.

Of course the consumption of gasoline is quite high especially in the city traffic (about 13-15 litres). On highways at steady speed of 110 km/h I was able to reach 8,9 litres/100 km which is acceptable.

General Comments:

The comfort of this car is excellent.

Driving with it is always a pleasure.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
