1996 Renault Clio RSI 1.8L RSI from UK and Ireland
None, car seemed perfect even though I haven't had it that long.
Car extremely quick for such a small car, said to be 8.5 second, but seems much quicker when you floor it in third.
Very reliable and handles well with power steering with hardly any effort required.
Cabin is bright, roomy with plenty of room for passengers.
Leather seats are the most comfortable of any car ever so are good for long journeys.
Cheap running costs, if it eventually breaks down the parts are usually quite cheap except if the whole engine went or something.
Check out the entire car throughly and test drive before buying, these cars can hide minor problems which are never seen, for example in my last car (reno Clio RT) there was rust in the boot which ended up letting water in.
This car costs £2750 from a private dealer with 56000 miles (very rare) and in new condition. Price various depending usually on condition and mileage, these versions are around £1600+ with higher mileage (e.g. 95000).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
