Summary:

High performance, but pain in the back

Faults:

Steering system made knocking noise since 0 km. It was repaired only at 6000 km.

Differential gear went wrong (gear shift made knocking noise during engine break).

Clutch pedal makes cracking noise sometimes.

Air ventilation system needed repair after half a year.

General Comments:

The 1.6 version has a very good engine, with good acceleration and real power. Internal comfort is very good, but the built quality is poor. Quality control at Renault is very very poor... Minimum 3 years guarantee would be needed for this car.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
