1997 Renault Clio RN 1.4 injection from Finland
Small OK car for a woman
Valve cover leaked oil, did not stop until I changed it to the "aftermarket" type.
Front bearings went from both sides around 50 000km.
Exhaust system rusted out from the catalyst to back.
Wiper relay went broken -02. new one costs 110 euros! aftermarket model is ten time cheaper, but does not work so well (wipers do not stop always to "down" position).
Gas consumption high in city driving (8 to 9 litres/100km) but I drive with hard foot. lowest I have reached is 6,1 litres/100km.
OK for a everyday drivin. no special feelings.
Seats are really poor and hard, I can't drive anywhere further than 200km without a pillow behind my back. (i am quite tall)
RN-equipment level means "no accessories" not even the glove box light!
1.4 engine is not a race engine. I recommend some hot rodding for the engine.
The cargo space can take quite much.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
