Performance OK, but now doubt it's longevity
Initially waited over four months for the car to come off the production line and then it came without the ordered assisted braking system. the dealer swapped the one ordered for me for one he had ordered personally.
Exhaust has had to be replaced (within the last four months - approx 26,000 miles)
The driver's window mechanism has broken (at current mileage.
Exhaust replacement - thought it was a bit early, considering the mileage, but accepted it.
The window mechanism has proved very expensive. There is a design fault in that if the wire within it breaks, the whole mechanism has to be replaced, rather than just the wire. (Leaving out the cost of labour, this makes a difference of around £170!)
Overall, the local dealer has been excellent - but Renault themselves are extremely poor.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
