A wolf in sheep's clothing!!!
Passenger seat does not slide forward when tilted, to allow passengers in or out of the rear.
Airbag light has flicked on three or four times, but hasn't stayed on.
Highly, highly recommended. This car is excellent, I'm just "nit-picking" at faults above.
It is a dream to drive, very very quick and handles extremely well!
I can't think of a bad point about the car, every-time I get out of it I'm left with a smile on my face.
It's economical for the power it produces.
My experience with Renault Dealers however is a different story. Once the paperwork was signed and deposit paid The Dealer had no interest in repairing the scratches, sorting out the water in the front fog-lights or the passenger seat mentioned above, as agreed. It took three visits, at least eight phone calls and a threat to stop payments before the scratches and the fog-lights were fixed. (I gave up with the seat)
Having said all this I would strongly consider a new Clio 182 when I come to replace it, but from a different dealer!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
