Summary:

Cheap to run and comfortable to drive

Faults:

The automatic air conditioning packed up after 4 months. I spent the whole summer without being able to have it fixed! In Italy the car dealers are closed for more than a month in the summer. The problem is still present as the air conditioning now only works manually! I've taken time off work on several occasions, but found the car dealer to be seriously unreliable. Now there is a frustrating noise coming from the dash board, which I believe to be related to the air conditioning fan?! I called the Renault help line and they promised to get back to me... That was a month ago!! I'm still waiting...

General Comments:

Apart from this continuous problem, it is a nice car.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
