Summary:

Truly incredible car for its time

Faults:

Electronics became faulty after 250000 km. Seat, mirrors' electrical drives often seemed to be dis-functional with no particular reason and later everything came back to normal (especially in cold/moist conditions).

Ignition module lost resistance to moisture after 250000 km. The engine often stopped in winter.

Small oil leakages, particularly, because of the worn gaskets.

Hand-brake cable was quite difficult to replace.

Plastic moldings on the doors don't last longer than 200000 km.

General Comments:

Beautiful, elegant, comfortable, reliable car with pretty good performance.

The V6 engine is very successful. You don't need to hesitate when overtaking.

Perfect handling capabilities. Servo and ABS worked perfectly.

Very pleasant interior. Lots of space.

I love this car. I wish Renault still made them.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
