1997 Renault Clio RT 1.4 from UK and Ireland
An ideal first buy and I love it
Petrol filter had a block.
Front right tire lost tyre pressure at a very fast rate.
Speedometer wavers at < 30mph.
This is my first car and I find it a very good buy.
It's got good visibility, driving position and dashboard layout.
For an automatic it is very quick and compares well with manual cars. This helps a lot in intersections and roundabouts (a unique UK feature!) where you need to move away fast.
Having RT trim does help in terms of comfort as the seats are very comfortable.
Though it is a small car, it is quite spacious. I have a toddler and I'm able to pack her stuff like push chair and other accessories easily.
Would recommend it to a first time buyer. Especially if it comes with a low mileage.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
