It's a very nice car, with a great engine and fuel consumption, spacious interior and well equipped


The car has problems on starting, since it cannot start properly on the first attempt sometimes. I have been several times to the dealer to solve the problem without success so far.

At the moment Renault says that it has a failure on the injectors, I am waiting the new ones from France and they will be change without charge since the car is still in warranty.

I hope that this time they will solve my problem.

The car was bought new in November 2008.

General Comments:

The car is nice to drive, but it's not so comfortable as my last Clio II (phase 1).

It feels very safe to drive and the engine is great with its turbo, giving all the power you need. I like very much the engine since it can have a low fuel consumption (4.2 to 6.6 L/100Km).

The Grand Modus has a lot of space, which is great for the car's exterior dimensions.

It is also well equipped.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
