1996 Renault Safrane RXE quadra 3.0 biturbo
High performance and luxury for a fair price
Rear transmission case is wet even after replacing all seals.
This is an inexpensive luxury car that shows very good handling and impressive performance at cruising speeds.
Fuel consumption is quite reasonable.
However I would expect a little bit more in terms of 0-60 mph acceleration from such a powerful engine with two turbochargers.
Gears are generally too long, 6-speed transmission would make the car a perfect chaser.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
