1992 Renault 19 RN 1.9 diesel from UK and Ireland
Unreliable with added water problems
Radiator went in the first week.
Starting problems, had the alternator and all the battery terminals & electrics tested. No problems found, but the car would still not start.
Ball joints replaced twice.
Water leaks from sun roof and roof, the water actually filled the whole car up with a puddle.
Gear stick rubs on the exhaust pipe, creating a knocking sound.
Steering vibration and the whole dash vibrates when you get over 70mph.
Poor take off in first gear - no power.
Central locking no longer works.
Would make a good family car, cheap to run, cheap on insurance.
Not very reliable, best to carry a set of jump leads or a spare battery...
Car is sluggish and not very comfortable.
Bought an expensive sound system which got ruined from the water logging.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
