Summary:

Will not buy Renault again. Don't like Renault policy.

Faults:

When I bought it, it has problem with fuel tank ventilation (could not get fuel from a gas station). Spare part changed by authorized technician. No charge.

After 1 month I started complaining about performance and not stable RPM.

Authorized service technician claimed that it was normal.

1 year and 10 days after I bought it started having fire problems on one spark plug. Technitian changed ignition coil (160 euro). One week ago I noticed the RPM in stability getting worst. 2 years after bought, the second ignition coil run bad (160euro). Now (3 years after bought) the other two ones died (280euro), the last spare parts were made in Germany in stead of France!.

I hope they last more.

3 years after bought, the electric front windows went DOWN (broken internal rails that they move on), 350euro.

General Comments:

Good in the road (all whether conditions tested) but I would expect from manufacturer to be honest and repair the car on his errors (ignition coils with manufacturing problems or windows with problems).

Thanks your comments. Everything that the car company publishes makes me want to buy, but service support is as important as how the car looks and runs.
