1987 Renault 21 ts 1.7 petrol from UK and Ireland
Front off-side shock absorber replaced at 65000 miles.
Noisy cam tensioner replaced at 79000 miles. Replaced timing belt at same time as a precaution.
Front off-side wheel bearing replaced at 80000 miles.
Anti-roll bar bushes replaced at 85000 miles.
86000 miles and the engine is as sweet as a nut.
The interior trim is in superb condition and the seats are the most comfortable I have ever encountered.
This car inspires confidence. I love the cavernous cabin and find the driving position to be excellent.
The engine starts first time whatever the weather and to date has not let me down.
I own a Ford Mondeo 2.0 glx estate. It is good, but the Renault is my favorite.
Although it is now 16 years old there is still no rust to be found anywhere and, given that I can still obtain parts for it, I intend to keep this vehicle to my dying day.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
