The car was delivered with only one key, and the second key took several months to obtain, apparently because Renault changed its coding system midstream.
The warranty upgrade from 1 to 2 years, promised on delivery of the car, took many calls to the dealer to obtain.
The flimsy rubber covers on 2 of the pushbutton light switches on the door frames fell off.
The transmission tended to stick in second gear, (fixed?) by the dealer.
The horn stopped working, then came back to life, then quit and was replaced.
The driver's door lock stopped working then came back to life (so far).
The turn indicator resets to the opposite signal on some turns, not to neutral. Two trips to the dealer have not gotten this fixed.
Most irksome: the automatic transmission was ruined by a brief ride over a flooded road. The dealer made me pay for a new torque converter.
An excellent design for families.
The car is difficult to park because of the steeply sloping hood and van-like rear end, neither of which is visible to the driver.
Handling is adequate if not exciting.
The 1.6 engine is inadequate on any kind of hills if the car has more than 2 occupants.
The driver's seating position and shallow steering wheel angle are very odd, making the steering like a school bus.
The great expanses of glass gives great visibility.
However, the windshield pillars interfere with visibility during turns.
Also, the car gets hot inside despite its heat absorbing glass.
