1990 Renault 21 Estate GLX 2.0 petrol injection from UK and Ireland
Too many annoying faults
Electric windows all failed regularly.
Doors often popped open while driving.
Wiper linkage broke twice.
Rust to rear tailgate, sills, doors.
Needs modification to go through water at all (air intake is very low), and even when altered electrics don't like it.
Front bumper too low, gets smashed offroad. Best to remove lower spoiler completely.
Generally the car's quite capable, with good towing power. Pulls a 2.5ton trailer easily.
Good engine until it gets wet, then it stops.
Quite good at pulling tree stumps as it's a heavy car.
Amazing economy for a big car, 43mpg (petrol) when driven carefully on the motorway.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
