Can easily compete with quite a few new model cars


Steering bearings, due to wear and tear, driving up in the mountains.

No real problem at all.

General Comments:

Very reliable, and nippy car. Would keep it for ever if it lasts.

It can still keep up 150km/h for a non stop 6hrs, fully loaded!

I'll really get myself another Renault.

Totally satisfied for a cheap running trendy and reliable little car.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
