A Clio 1.6 was my first car. I loved that car and it almost made me broke. It was zippy and just the right size for me. However, I never had much confidence that the dealership knew what they were doing. I knew the transmission light came on and they told me that it was a fault that could be 'erased'. The transmission eventually gave out and then they didn't have the trained technician to rebuild it. The cost of parts in Trinidad and Tobago would rule out me ever buying another Renault. Resale value is also low.
