2000 Renault Clio 1.2 from UK and Ireland
Rubbish french car
I do actually happen to like my Clio, but for the past YEAR I have had a problem with it! Whenever I drive it and slow down to a junction or put it in a lower gear, a light comes on the dashboard in the shape of a coil and my car cuts out.
It has been taken to a mechanic and plugged into a diagnostic machine, and it doesn't say what's wrong with it. It has had lots of parts put in to try and fix it, but it never works. However finally, we have found out what is wrong with it. It is something to do with the throttle. I have had a second hand part put in as a new one costs £300!! But unfortunately the second hand part doesn't work, so we are going to have to pay for the brand new part. Hopefully this will work, as every time I drive my car I fear for my life that I will have an accident!
After this problem has been fixed, I am selling it and am never buying a Clio again!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
