2009 Renault Clio Expression 1.5 diesel
Great price, better reliability expected
Stop lights went off. 3 times.
Brake pads replaced at 35000 km.
Tyres replaced at 25000.
Engine mount replaced at 40000.
The car has great fuel economy. But it should be known that the average given by the onboard computer does not calculate consumption below 30 km/h speeds. Thus at least 10% should be added for city driving.
I have the 85 hp model. It is more than enough if you are not buying that small city car for racing purposes.
In fact it was surprising that the car has really wide space of its size, especially the boot. But you shouldn't be asking for comfort. It has cheap plastic all around creating sound.
The issues that went wrong are given above. I expected it would not start to require service so early. The car cannot be rated high for reliability in my experience.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
