I hated this car. That's why I got rid of it so soon. The engine has a lousy performance, the plastics used in the car interior are awful (!!), the handling is not good enough for a car of its kind, the worst part is probably the reliability.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I have had my R19 for 15 years and it's still going strong.
1997 Renault 19 RN 1.9 turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
Alternator voltage regulator failed.
Clutch pedal mechanism failure.
That's the lot, even after 60K.
Excellent car, very reliable, and very economical (55mpg +).
Being a turbo, the power is there when needed.
All extra's included.
Much better than the Megane replacement in terms of build quality and reliability.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
