Summary:

Excellent value for money

Faults:

I imported the vehicle LHD from OMAN and had some difficulty getting it registered. Biggest problem is lights as the Galloper is NOT sold in the UK. Renault 5 lights fit and were fitted to get it through the SVA (TAKEN OFF AFTERWARDS).

I seem to have problem with the drive just now. When just starting off there is loud 'clunks' from the drive which dissapear on picking up speed, but the drive is noisy. This does not happen all the time and does not happen in 4 wheel drive?

I will need spares for this vehicle, but where from?

Ia it possible to get hold of a Maintenance Manual/Service Manual?

General Comments:

I had the vehicle in Oman since 1999 and I am generally very pleased with it.

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