1991 Renault Clio RT 1.4 petrol from UK and Ireland
A great car with loads of personality
Remote central locking didn't always work, I never found out why, I just used the key in the lock.
The car was hesitating under acceleration, this turned out to be a worn rotor arm, which was fixed by my local garage for under £50.
I really loved this car, and if someone hadn't reversed into it while it was parked and written it off, I think I would still have it.
They are very pretty cars, and this one, being the RT model had body coloured bumpers, which added to the good looks.
It also had Remote central locking and electric windows. I understand that they are also available with power steering and ABS, mine didn't have these, but the steering was pretty light anyway.
It handled really well and was a fun drive. I liked the gearshift and it was also a pretty quick car, with smooth acceleration, and a top speed of about 110mph, if not slightly more.
Altogether, this was a superb car, with no major faults during my ownership. It was always a joy to drive and never let me down.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
