2000 Renault Megane RXT 1.6
Fine, but get rid of it by its 5th year
At 6000 kilometers and below, had a lot of problems with electricity - had to replace the rear wiper, the front panel, and a lot of the fuses.
At 4,000km or so, had to replace the whole gear box as it wouldn't go in reverse.
The tires need replacing almost every 2 years.
The battery has had to be replaced twice already.
The exterior paint chips really easy and rusts.
The plastic trim on the win shield started peeling off at 3+ years.
The alarm is incredibly annoying and resets after a small time and you have to reset it a few times.
As of 7.5 years (120,000 kilometers) have had to change the whole window mechanism for 3 out of the 4 windows - the motor went and the window slid down.
Also recently had to replace the gas cable, the clutch, the radiator, and the bearings for the rear wheels.
Overall a very smooth, responsive powerful car for a 1.6 benzene.
I love the safety of the car and its solidity, but its too expensive to run.
The interior has no space to put drinks or glasses, etc.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
