2001 Renault Clio Sport 172 2.0 petrol from Australia and New Zealand
Best performance for money!!
A "knock" noise has appeared in the right rear suspension. This noise occurs when releasing the clutch after changing gear.
Except for this noise, it's a perfect car!!
A very reliable car with exceptional performance.
Modern interior styling.
Interior could be improved by better build quality. eg nicer fitting components.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I just got a 172, the rear wheel liner knocks under certain conditions?

Hi, I have a 172 and have the same problem, especially under wheel spin - easily attained accidently in the wet. It sounds like the exhaust is banging onto a bracket or possibly the fuel tank? I had the same problem with my scirocco.
