1991 Renault 25 TXE Executive 2.0 petrol injection from UK and Ireland
French style and comfort at a bargain price
Dashboard computer needed replacing. This was blown by previous owner jump-starting the car incorrectly.
New brake discs and pads on front.
A very comfortable car with leather and electric seats. The ride is smooth and the handling is good for a car of this size.
The automatic gearbox is not very smooth and saps the power making overtaking something to be avoided unless there is plenty of room. The fuel consumption is better than expected, but by no means frugal.
The controls are generally logical and easy to use apart from the slightly awkward centre console switches which haven't been altered from the original left hand drive format.
The brakes are somewhat spongy, but still effective. However, the throttle pedal can be uncomfortable on long journeys. Again, this is a result of being a right hand drive car. Cruise control would ease this.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
