2010 Renault Clio GT 1.2 TCE

Summary:

The best all around

Faults:

Stop light failed at 12000Km.

Noise in seat belt fixture.

Noise in right brake pad, as it gets worn out.

General Comments:

The car is very spacious, the engine has a great compromise between performance and fuel consumption, and the car is very quiet as it goes 130 Km/h at 3000 RPM.

The suspension is a little bit harsh, but gives you safe cornering in every condition.

1993 Renault Clio Williams 2.0 16v

Summary:

The best hot hatch ever

Faults:

Alternator gone at 111000kms.

General Comments:

Best hot hatch ever.

Best steering feel I ever saw.. better than a MINI Cooper..

The engine is full of torque, with a close ratio gearbox and 950kg.. it's fast without rpms (rev limiter 6500rpm).

Drives on rails... in 3 wheels.. ;)

I will never sell it!!!

Grab yours before prices go up..

1998 Renault Clio Manager 1.9 diesel

Summary:

A very good deal

Faults:

Rear pump brake, at around 80.000 km.

General Comments:

The car served the purpose. Very economical and extremely reliable.

The power steering really helps a lot.

No major problems, exhaust was never changed, and oil consumption was almost null. The same applies for the fuel (about 6 L/100 km).

Maintenance costs are very low, and the performance is reasonable.

I did a lot of long trips with it, and always found it comfortable.

I bought a new one, after this!

2002 Renault Clio Privilege 1.4 16v

Summary:

The best choice in the segment.

Faults:

So far, nothing.

General Comments:

The car is a good deal, the engine is fast, and has a good economy.

The gearbox, as all other Renaults, is precise, soft, but a little slow.

The steering is really good, and the seats are very comfortable.

It handles really good!

I noticed some noises, like it it's something loose, under the steering column.

Also, sometimes there's a strange smell coming from the air conditioner.

I haven't fixed any of them, so far, since I can't stop the car.

Renault should change the handles on the doors. The plastic gets scratched easily.

A cheap option for low budgets

The fascia vents are worthless, fragile plastics.

Power windows buttons fail quite often.

General Comments:

Good comfort.

Quite nice in turns.

Reasonable in performance.

Many gadgets.

It does not rust away easily.

Very good engine and gear box.

However, be aware of neglected Clios, a careless owner makes the difference between a nice french compact and a piece of french garbage.
