2001 Renault Clio Dinamique 1.6 16v petrol from Slovenia
Best you can get for 25000 DEM
So far - none. It has only 5900 kilometres.
I am impressed. This car offers quite a lot for a reasonable price. It accelerates very well, fuel consumption is acceptable, handling - superb.
The interior is very ergonomic, filled with so much comfort that you don't need anything else. Well... leather seats, navigation system, xenon lamps are still on the list to add...
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Not so impressed - I have had mine for a month (1800 miles). It has been back to the garage twice so far (front N/S seat sliding on ratchets under braking), door seals causing draughts and condensation... it has to go back again because the sun roof is knackered.
Also, apparently Renault are having problems with the EMS (Engine management system) where the car is cutting out for no reason - has happened to me a few times - once on the motorway - was a bit scary! Only Renault have not yet sent the dealers the software to rectify the problem.
Fuel consumption is good - getting approx 42mpg, handling is not superb and in the snow it is like driving a sledge. (1 cm of snow!)
The seats are very comfortable in the Dynamique and the gearbox is excellent. Back seats - don't try and stick an adult in the back of the car - your head hits the roof and the head rests are extremely uncomfortable, given at full stretch they rest on your neck. The back is OK for kids under 12, and even then only on short journeys (Even the Toyota Yaris has more room in the back!!).
Interior leaves a bit to be desired - look at the Punto for the setting the class. Vast improvement on the old Clio and for the price I guess you shouldn't grumble too much - but it is the last time that I will buy a green car!!! Had nothing but bad luck...
