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.

General Comments:

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

God bi-turbo that sounds great!!!At what speed does the turbo kick in?

I wonder if anyone has fitted a nitrous kit to one of these beasts.
