2008 Renault Clio III 1.6i


Good car except for my water leak problem!


Water leaking from door seals - front and rear!

Rear brake squeak - possibly dragging a bit.

General Comments:

Generally like the car apart from the constant water leaks. I'm taking it back to the garage for the 5th time since I've owned it! It's really taking the shine off a car that I like. I expected much more from an 18 month old vehicle!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Hi, I also had problems with leakage through rear door windows, but my Renault dealer replaced the rubbers around windows under warranty. This is the weak point of Clio III, but also a problem with front windscreen wipers (false design) - not possible to raise wipers because the bonnet is too close.

Everything else 10/10! Excellent car except on 1.2 TCE rear wheels - lack of disc brakes (100 HP)???

Pulls like tornado from low revs + overboost (1st to 4th gear) = smile on your face!
